Leaders of Germany, France and Italy Visit Ukraine

HeadlineJun 16, 2022

The leaders of Germany, France and Italy have arrived in Ukraine to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. During a stop in the Ukrainian city of Irpin, French President Emmanuel Macron criticized what he called Russian “barbarism.” Ahead of the trip, Macron repeated his call for Ukraine and Russia to hold talks to end the war.

President Emmanuel Macron: “Because at some point, when we have helped as much as possible to resist, and I hope Ukraine will have won, and, above all, for the fighting to have stopped, we will have to negotiate. The Ukrainian president and his officials will have to negotiate with Russia, and we, Europeans, will be at the table bringing up the guarantees of security, the elements which concern our continent. And that is the reality of things.”
