Indonesian President Joko Widodo arrived in Kyiv, he intends to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, and also go to Irpen. Widodo announced this on his Twitter account. This is the first leader of an Asian country to visit the Ukrainian capital. After that, Widodo will travel to Moscow, where he has an appointment with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“The 11-hour train journey from the Polish city of Przemysl to the Ukrainian capital went smoothly and without a hitch,” Widodo wrote.
He added that he began "this peaceful mission with good intentions." “Hopefully it will get easier,” the Indonesian leader said.
On June 28, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, citing Widodo, said that the Indonesian president excludes the personal participation of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Bali in November this year. “President Widodo rules that out. He was categorical - " Putin - The Insider" will not come. Remote activation is possible, we'll see," Draghi said.
Putin did indeed accept the invitation to the summit, presidential aide Yuri Ushakov said, but the Kremlin does not yet know what format the head of state's participation in the event will take.
In mid-June, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi visited the Ukrainian capital. Before that, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson visited Kyiv.
