Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky has crossed the border into Poland to begin an official visit to his country’s neighbor and one of its closest partners, according to the president’s office and Polish media.
Marcin Przydacz, head of Ukraine’s Presidential Office of International Policy, told Polish broadcaster TVN24 that Zelensky is expected at the Presidential Palace at 11:00 a.m. local time.
The Ukrainian and Polish presidents are expected to deliver a joint address at 6:00 p.m. local time.
Unlike Zelensky’s previous visits abroad since Russia began its invasion of Ukraine, he is travelling with his wife.
During his visit, the Ukrainian President will sign bilateral agreements and hold talks with both Polish President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.
He will also meet with representatives of Polish business within the framework of the Ukrainian-Polish business forum, leaders of the upper and lower houses of Poland’s Parliament, and the mayors of cities bordering Ukraine.
