Giorgia Meloni in Kiev, will chair the G7 meeting on Ukraine

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni is in Kiev on the second anniversary of the war in Ukraine, and from here she will hold the G7 video conference, in which Volodymyr Zelensky will also speak. Meloni arrived in the capital on board the same train on which the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen , Alexander De Croo , Prime Minister of Belgium who is the rotating President of the EU Council, and the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau traveled. The trip has only now been made official for safety reasons.

From Russia, meanwhile, the army reports that the Minister of Defense, Sergei Shoigu , visited the troops in the occupied territories of Ukraine. “Today, in the balance of forces, the advantage is on our side,” he told the military.
