The Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has urged the leaders of the European Union countries, the U.S and Britain to visit the Ukrainian capital in a show of solidarity.
He said German Chancellor, French President, U.S. President, British Prime Minister and other EU government leaders should travel to Kiev, look into the eyes of the women and children there and help them to save lives and their independence.
According to him, Ukrainians were fighting for the values of Europe and the western world.
Kiev has been regularly shelled since Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.
The prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia travelled to Kiev by train on Tuesday and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in a show of support.
Andriy Melnyk, Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, said while the trip may have been symbolic politics, “but it gave the people of more than two million in Kiev, who have stayed in the city courage.”
Melnyk also urged German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to travel to Kiev in comments to Bild Live.
“It would be nice if Chancellor Scholz could visit Kiev sometime, in order to see the destruction and get a feeling of what people are dealing with here.”
