The Polish, Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian presidents on their way to kyiv. The German Chancellor will then continue on the delivery of heavy weapons
In one of the posts published today on the social network Twitter, the exterior of the Ukrainian passenger car is shown, but without further details of the trip.
“We are visiting Ukraine to show our strong support for the Ukrainian people. We will meet our dear friend President Zhelensky,” Estonian President Alar Carris said in a statement.
The trip will be attended by Polish President Andrzej Duda, Lithuanian President Kidanas Nouseda and Latvian President Egles Levitz.
The visit follows a meeting between TUDA and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier in Warsaw on Tuesday. Zhelensky from Kyiv said his intention was to attend the visit, but his presence was not necessary.
Steinmeier himself later, before the media of the Polish capital and his country, explained that the denial was reported from kyiv, and he regrets it.
The purpose of today’s visit by the four leaders is to show “European solidarity” with Ukraine, said the Polish president’s sources quoted by the Efe news agency.
The President of Germany visited kyiv to solve the supply of heavy weapons
German Chancellor Olaf Scholes is expected to travel to kyiv to take “practical decisions”, a statement from Ukraine’s adviser on the possibility of supplying heavy weapons to Ukraine in the face of a Russian offensive.
“President [Volodymyr Zelensky] Waiting for the chancellor [alemão] To take immediate practical decisions, including the handing over of weapons, ”explained the adviser, Oleksiï Arestovitch, in a press release to the German public television channel ZDF.
He pointed out that the fate of Mariupol and the population of the eastern part of the country “could provide German weapons, but not yet arrived”. “Discuss the supply of heavy weapons”.
Berlin has already supplied Ukraine with defensive weapons, but Olaf Scholz has been pushing for days to allow the use of offensive equipment, including armored vehicles, even within his parliamentary majority.
The ministers of foreign affairs and the economy, two of the most influential figures in the government, have asked the president to speak out in favor of these distributions.
“Every minute that passes without a tank arriving, more and more of our children are dying, raped or tortured,” Aresovich said.
German officials saw “terrible images” of the conflict, which the adviser said recalled the devastation of Berlin in 1945: “what the Russian army is doing in Ukraine is no different.”
The news comes in the wake of tensions between Germany and Ukraine, following President Gelensky’s refusal to meet German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Tuesday, who wanted to visit kyiv with representatives from Poland and the Baltic states. .
The German head of state has been criticized for his diplomatic strategy of good relations with Russia when Angela Merkel was foreign minister.
