Paris – French President Emmanuel Macron will fly to Brussels this morning together with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky for the European Union summit. According to AFP, the Elysee Palace informed about it. Zelenskyi arrived on Wednesday for an unannounced visit to Britain and France, during which he convinced Ukraine's allies to quickly send fighter jets and other advanced military equipment. Kyiv warns that Russia, whose aggression Ukraine has been facing for almost a year, is preparing an offensive.
Zelenskyj, who met with British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Wednesday and later in Paris with Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, has now gone abroad for only the second time since the beginning of the Russian invasion. He visited the United States in December.
