European leaders visit Kyiv in show of solidarity with Ukraine – BBC News

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi and Romanian President Klaus Iohannis have met with Ukrainian President Zelensky in Kyiv.

The French, German and Italian leaders took an overnight train from Poland and were joined by the Romanian leader in Ukraine to meet with Zelensky, where they hope to counter criticisms of their support for the country and offer help to its people.

Their visit has been met with scorn by Russia, with Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov saying he hoped it would not focus solely on supplying Ukraine with weapons as that would cause further damage to the country.

Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev says there is “zero use” in the leaders being there.
