Leaders of Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia to visit Kyiv on Tuesday

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Czech PM Petr Fiala and Slovenia’s Prime Minister Janez Janša will meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and his PM Denys Shmyhal in Kyiv on Tuesday.

The leaders will make the visit, even as invading Russian forces are close to the Ukrainian capital and the city is under sustained shelling, following the Kremlin’s lethal invasion, which began on February 24.

The Polish government issued a statement early Tuesday, saying that the prime ministers of the three countries will act as representatives of the European Council, and that the meeting was organized in consultation with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen. Jarosław Kaczyński, leader of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice party, will also be part of the visiting delegation.

The statement, which was published in English, added that the purpose of the visit is to confirm “the unequivocal support of the entire European Union for the sovereignty and independence of Ukraine,” as well as to “present a broad package of support for the Ukraine  (sic) and Ukrainians.” International organizations, such as the U.N., were also informed of the visit, the statement said.

The EU is set to publish the list of companies and individuals to be targeted in a fourth raft of sanctions aimed at Russia’s business and media elites, as well as several defense companies.
