The visit of the leaders of Germany, France and Italy to Kyiv is a show of solidarity but also about a commitment to carry on supporting and helping Ukraine and its citizens, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz says.

Speaking to German newspaper Bild on his way to Kyiv, Scholz said: “We don’t just want to demonstrate solidarity, we also want to make it clear that we will continue with the help we’re organising – financial and humanitarian, but also when it comes to weapons.”

The support will go on for as long “as is necessary for Ukraine’s struggle for independence”, Scholz says.

The situation Ukraine is in is “very unusual”, Scholz says.

He also makes clear sanctions are of great importance, saying: “They contribute to the chance that Russia will give up its operation and withdraw its troops again. Because that’s the goal.”
