The office of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that he will travel to France and Germany. In Paris, he will sign an agreement with Emmanuel Macron, and in Munich he will meet, among others, with Mette Frederiksen.

According to the Elysee Palace in Paris, Zelensky will sign a security agreement with his French counterpart Macron on Friday. However, neither Paris nor Kiev revealed any details about the agreement.

Zelensky will also meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. On Saturday, the Ukrainian president will speak at the annual security conference in Munich. There he also holds meetings with US Vice President Kamala Harris, Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, “and other heads of state and government as well as business leaders,” his staff said.

Zelensky's visit comes in light of Ukraine's increasingly desperate struggle to obtain billions of dollars in aid from the West, not least through the controversial US aid package that the US Congress has been debating since last year.
