Zelensky called Russia’s invasion of Ukraine a war “for a unified Europe.”

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Scholz and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi visited Ukraine on Thursday (16th) and met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Kyiv.

Ukraine has previously criticized the three European powers for being too cautious in their support for Ukraine. During the meeting, the leaders of France, Germany, Italy and Romania all expressed support for Ukraine’s application to join the European Union, saying it should be granted candidate status “immediately”.

“Ukraine belongs to the European family,” Scholz told a joint news conference.

But he added that Ukraine still had to fully meet the conditions for joining the EU.
