Airstrike alerts were sounded in Kyiv and across Ukraine on Friday as a summit of European Union and Ukraine leaders was due to begin in the country’s capital.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy received senior European Union officials, who visited Kyiv with pledges to support Ukraine “for as long as necessary” but denied the country at war with Russia a fast track to join the Western Bloc.
Zelenskyy hosted EU President Charles Michel and Bloc Chief Executive Ursula von der Leyen ahead of the one-year anniversary of the invasion of Moscow that has devastated cities, killed tens of thousands, displaced millions from their homes and shattered world food supplies.
“The EU will support Ukraine and the Ukrainian people against Russia’s ongoing war of aggression for as long as is necessary,” the three leaders said in a joint statement, a draft of which Reuters was able to preview.
