This morning, the leaders of the three largest EU countries are arriving in Kiev.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi plan to discuss a number of important issues with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. It is reported by Ranews.it .

The main purpose of the trip is to show support for Ukraine.

According to the publication, the second goal is a signal to Russian President Vladimir Putin that the unity of purpose of the European Union is not in doubt, even with all the various nuances arising from not always coinciding national interests. 

The third goal, according to the publication, is that Italy, France and Germany want to show their allies, primarily the United States, that the Union has its own strategic autonomy and the core of the founders, ready to lead Europe towards even greater integration, starting with a common defense and an ever-expanding foreign policy. general. A path that actually accelerates the Ukrainian crisis.

  1. I feel sorry for Zelensky, for me must be diplomatic when he is forced to listen to the garbage from the Three Stooges of European politics.
    My prediction to the outcome of this meeting; nothing.
    They will either try to convince Zelensky to agree to a ceasefire, with mafia land keeping what it stole. Or, they will promise weapons that will never arrive. Or, they will go with the status quo fully intact. Either way, it’ll be a total waste of time.
    I wish, though, that I’m proven completely wrong in a positive way. Yes, it could be worse than what I’ve predicted, but I won’t delve into that.
