Danish Prime Minister visits Kyiv

       

Denmark’s Prime Minister on Thursday pledged to send more weapons to Ukraine during a trip to Kyiv, where she and her Spanish counterpart Pedro Sanchez were meeting President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a gesture of support.

     

Mette Frederiksen also visited the badly damaged town of Borodyanka, which has been retaken after Russian troops pulled back from the region around Kyiv.

     

“We intend to deliver more weapons to Ukraine because that is what is most needed,” Frederiksen told the Danish channel TV2 as she walked around the town surrounded by armed soldiers.

      

Frederiksen and her Spanish counterpart Pedro Sanchez both arrived in Kyiv early on Thursday, according to footage posted on Sanchez’ Twitter account

    

Frederiksen’s office said talks with Zelenskiy would focus on further support for the Ukrainians and the prosecution of “war crimes and human rights violations”.

     

Russia calls its action a “special military operation” to demilitarize Ukraine and eradicate what it calls dangerous nationalists. The West and Kyiv accuse Russian President Vladimir Putin of an unprovoked war of aggression.

    

Numerous European leaders have travelled to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion to show support for its president and people, more especially since Russia pulled back its forces from northern Ukraine.

  1. Why isn’t there any urgency in fortifying Kyiv and other key cities like Odessa, Lviv, Kharkiv and Mykolaiv?
    The above cities simply cannot be allowed to be taken if Ukraine is to survive.
    No city is totally safe from air attack, but a western-standard air defence system would stop much of the carnage being committed by scum RuSSian war criminal aviators.
    Why aren’t these cities also equipped with cruise missiles and long range artillery?
