Three EU heads of government have announced a trip to Kiev

After more than two weeks of war, Kiev is almost completely surrounded by Russian troops. Nevertheless, the prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia want to set a precedent for the Ukrainian capital.

Amid escalating fighting in Kiev, leaders of the governments of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia are scheduled to visit the Ukrainian capital on Tuesday. The government in Warsaw has announced that Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki will travel to Kyiv with his colleagues Petr Fiala and Janez Jansa to confirm EU support for Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj and Prime Minister Denys Schmyhal.

“The purpose of this visit is to reaffirm the clear support of the entire European Union for the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine and to provide a broader contribution to the Ukrainian government and community,” Warsaw said in a statement. Accordingly, all three politicians are traveling to Kiev as “representatives of the European Council”. The trip was co-chaired by EU Council President Charles Michel and EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

After more than two weeks of war, Kiev is almost completely surrounded by Russian troops. Powerful bombs exploded in the Ukrainian capital early Tuesday morning. At least three apartment buildings were attacked in Sviatushyn, Podil and Osorky districts, killing at least two people, according to Ukrainian rescue workers. AFP reporters reported a large cloud of smoke over Kyiv and severe damage to a ten-story apartment building in the Podil district.

According to Zhelensky, talks between Kiev and Moscow will continue on Tuesday. The two sides recently talked about the progress of the talks.
