During that conversation “the parties discussed the expected results of the next Ukraine-EU summit to be held on February 3 in kyiv and they agreed to intensify the preparatory work,” explained the Ukrainian president, without giving further details about the event.
The Ukrainian capital has suffered several attacks in recent days with drones guided by the Russian Army that have destroyed a large part of its basic infrastructure and keep the city subject to power, water and gas cuts.
Precisely, the Ukrainian head of state said that he had informed von der Leyen “about the situation on the battlefield and the consequences of Russian bombing that regularly affects civilian infrastructure.”
The President of the European Commission, for her part, assured Zelensky “his unwavering solidarity with Ukraine and stressed that the EU will also support the country in the fight against the aggressor in 2023, until the victory of Ukraine”.
