Shortly after 18:00 the prime minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis arrived at the Elysee Palace, in Paris, to participate in the conference organized by the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, to support Ukraine. Kyriakos Mitsotakis was welcomed at the threshold of the Elysee Palace by Emmanuel Macron.

The international meeting on the Ukrainian issue is being held today with the participation of heads of state and government, mainly from EU countries, following the initiative of the French president Emmanuel Macron.

French diplomatic sources underlined today that due to the clear recent escalation of Russian aggression, both in words and in deeds, the aim of the meeting is to review all means of effective assistance to Ukrainebut also sending a message to Moscow that the allies of Kiev they are not “tired”, as Russian propaganda often implies, but “determined to prevent Russia from prevailing in the war conflict it started”.

The same sources reported that the Russia is gradually becoming a ‘global destabilizing factor’, that European public opinion should be fully informed of the dangers that lie ahead and that tomorrow’s debate will focus on ‘what more we can do and how we can do it better’. They said, however, that the meeting will not result in concrete announcements and that its main goal is to confirm the common strategy of all those who have sided with Ukraine.

President Macron had the opportunity to discuss the objectives of the meeting with the US president Joe Bidenwith whom he had a telephone conversation last Friday, as well as with the German chancellor Olaf Solz, who is among the European leaders who came to Paris, like, after all, the Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. Finally, from the British side, as it became known, Foreign Minister David Cameron will be present.
