The president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has arrived in kyiv this Thursday to meet with the Ukrainian president, Volodimir Zelenski, in a lightning trip in which she will be able to discuss new support measures for Ukraine.
European sources have confirmed that the head of the European Executive is already in the Ukrainian capital, where she will discuss with Zelensky the latest European initiatives against the Russian military invasion.
During the Debate on the State of the Union in Strasbourg, France, Von der Leyen announced 100 million euros for the reconstruction of schools in Ukraine, the country’s access to European ‘roaming’ and greater access to the single market.
In her speech, the German conservative called on the EU to be firm in keeping the pulse with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in the midst of the energy crisis in Europe and defended that the European sanctions are already affecting the Russian economy and that “they have come to stay “.
“I want to make it clear, the sanctions are here to stay. This is the time for us to show determination, not appeasement,” he said, in a call to maintain unity within the Twenty-seven at a time when Moscow is going to try to exploit the differences between member states.
