Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, traveled by train from Poland, Al-Mamlaka TV reported.

Meloni is expected to host a video conference later in the day with Group of Seven (G7) leaders, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Despite the recent agreements worth billions of dollars with France and Germany, the Republicans in Congress are obstructing the aid promised by US President Joe Biden, amounting to $61 billion. This casts a shadow over Kyiv’s hopes of countering the larger, better-equipped Russian military.

Across Ukraine, events will be held on Saturday to commemorate the anniversary, including memorial services for those who lost their lives in Bucha, north of Kyiv, where some of the worst war crimes are believed to have occurred during the war.
