A visit to Ukraine by French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi is not useful and will not bring the parties closer to peace. Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia, stated this on Twitter.
“Here, European connoisseurs of frogs, liver and pasta love to visit Kyiv. Benefits— zero. Again they promised to join the EU, the old howitzers, the vodka and the train slammed, like 100 years ago, & mdash; home. And all is well. Only now this does not bring Ukraine closer to peace. And the clock is ticking, — written by a politician.
Macron, Scholz and Draghi arrived in Kyiv by train on the morning of June 16. The leaders of the three countries are going to discuss with Zelensky military assistance to Ukraine, as well as its application for accession to the European Union, writes the French edition Le Parisien.
Europe 1 radio station, citing sources, reported that during this visit, the French leader may announce the transfer to Kyiv of six more 155-mm Caesar self-propelled artillery pieces. The Italian newspaper La Stampa wrote that politicians plan to discuss with the President of Ukraine the issues of demining ports and unblocking grain corridors.
The Ukrainian capital was previously visited by the presidents of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, as well as British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. On June 11, President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen met with Zelensky in Kyiv.
Ukraine's accession to the EU may not be as “harmless” as previously expected, as the union has “turned into an aggressive militant player who declares his ambitions far beyond the European continent,” Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said. Russia also believes that the West is committing a “war crime” by supplying weapons to Ukraine.
