European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will travel to Kyiv this week for a meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. She will be accompanied by EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, her spokesman said on Twitter on Tuesday.
It is not yet clear when the meeting will take place. So far, the heads of government of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia have visited Kyiv. From there, there has long been a demand that a trip by senior EU politicians would be an important show of support.
