Under protective EU umbrella – Meloni is working on Ukraine reconstruction summit

Following her visit to Ukraine on Tuesday, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is preparing for an Italo-Ukrainian summit where government officials in Rome and Kiev are expected to discuss reconstruction plans. The conference is scheduled for the end of April in Rome, the Roman daily Il Messaggero reported. Meloni hopes for the EU’s protective shield for the summit.

Meloni was due to attend the summit in Rome along with her Ukrainian counterpart Denys Schmyhal. Italian companies want to play a leading role in the reconstruction of Ukraine. Meloni had already emphasized this on Tuesday during her meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Italian companies would play a role
Italian companies mainly want to play a role in the logistics sector. The newspaper reported that they want to participate in the reconstruction of airports in Ukraine. They are also willing to provide prefabricated housing and bomb disposal solutions.

Right-wing politician Meloni already supported arms shipments to Ukraine before she won elections in September last year. On the other hand, their two coalition partners – Matteo Salvini of the right-wing Lega and Silvio Berlusconi of the conservative Forza Italia – have repeatedly made pro-Russian statements.
