Von der Leyen and Borrell meet Zelensky this week in Kiev


The President of the European Commission and the EU’s High Representative for Foreign Policy will travel to the Ukrainian capital, as announced by the Community Executive on Tuesday.

The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy, Joseph Borrellwill travel to Kiev this week to personally meet the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyin a gesture of support ahead of the donor conference.

Von der Leyen and Borrell will head to the Ukrainian capital to raise money ahead of Saturday’s event in Warsaw, said a spokesman for the community administration, Eric Mamer, who did not name dates.

The Head of the Commission and the EU’s most important diplomatic officer are thus following in the footsteps of the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metzola, who last week became the first top bloc official to travel to Ukraine since the invasion began. Several European leaders had done it before, but on their own behalf and not on behalf of the Twenty-seven, as will be the case with von der Leyen and Borrell.

This new visit falls in the middle of a debate about a possible tightening of sanctions for the massacres of civilians near Kiev.
