Von der Leyen, Borrell to meet Zelenskyy in Kyiv

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell will meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv this week, an EU spokesman said Tuesday.

“President von der Leyen and High Representative Josep Borrell will travel this week to Kyiv to meet President Zelenskyy,” Commission chief spokesman Eric Mamer wrote on Twitter, confirming a statement on Monday by Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša.

The visit to the Ukrainian capital will take place before Saturday, when von der Leyen is set to attend a Stand Up For Ukraine event in Warsaw, Mamer added. The event, jointly organized by the Commission president and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, will raise money for Ukrainian refugees.

European Parliament President Roberta Metsola met with the Ukrainian leadership in Kyiv on Friday.

Last month, three of central Europe’s prime ministers — Poland’s Mateusz Morawiecki, the Czech Republic’s Petr Fiala and Slovenia’s Janša — also traveled to Kyiv to meet Zelenskyy and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. In the run-up to that visit, Zelenskyy invited other world leaders to come, writing on social media that he wanted “all friends of Ukraine to visit Kyiv.”
