French President Emmanuel Macron has postponed his planned visit to Ukraine due to security concerns, the French magazine Challenges reported on Sunday.
According to the report, the trip was scheduled for February 13-14. Macron was expected to visit Odessa – Ukraine’s top Black Sea port – and later arrive in Kiev, the magazine said. The French government has not commented on the reported delay.
The exact dates of foreign leaders’ trips to Ukraine are typically not revealed in advance.
Macron last visited Kiev in June 2022, four months after Russia launched its ongoing military operation in the neighboring country. New French foreign minister, Stephane Sejourne, made a visit to the Ukrainian capital in January, where he met with President Vladimir Zelensky and promised more support.
