On Wednesday, June 28, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda arrived in Kyiv. The program of Nauseda's planned meeting with Zelensky consists of discussing the agenda for the upcoming NATO summit in Vilnius, support for Ukraine's EU accession, and military assistance to Kyiv.
Nausėda also announced in his microblog about the purchase by Lithuania of two modernized Norwegian NASAMS air defense systems with their subsequent transfer to Ukrainians. The Lithuanian leader also announced his positive expectations for Ukraine on the eve of the forthcoming NATO summit in July.
Also on this day, Polish President Andrzej Duda visited Kyiv. According to sources, his arrival in the Ukrainian capital is connected with the celebration of the Constitution Day of Ukraine. In addition, Duda plans to discuss the situation on the front line and prepare for a meeting of the heads of defense departments of the Western military bloc.
The day before, Duda advised countries that support Moscow’s line in the conflict with Kiev to give Russia part of their territory if they are ready to “sacrifice” Ukrainian regions “easily”. The Polish president is confident that everything must be done to defeat Russia and return all lost lands to Ukraine.
Earlier, the German newspaper Bild suggested that Washington would require Kyiv to make contacts with Moscow in the event of the failure of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
