Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez To Meet Zelensky In Kyiv This Week

PARIS, France – Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez will travel to Kyiv in the next few days to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, a senior Spanish government official told CNN Tuesday.

The official said they could not release any more information ‘for security reasons’.

Spain announced Monday it would be reopening its Kyiv embassy ‘in the coming days’.

The embassy was shut with personnel evacuated to Warsaw in neighboring Poland soon after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in late February.

The reopening will be ‘a new sign of the commitment of the Spanish government and society to the Ukrainian people’, Sanchez told Spanish TV Antena 3 on Monday.
