The President of Argentina, Javier Milei, intends to visit Kyiv and meet with his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The trip is scheduled for June, according to Twitter (X) of Milei and Infobae.

The Argentine leader's post indicates a report by the media, specifically stating that he "affirms his geopolitical agenda with a visit to Zelenskyy amid Russia's ongoing offensive in Ukraine."

It is noted that Milei will arrive in Kyiv for a "swift visit" after receiving the Juan Mariano awards in Madrid, with the ceremony planned for June 21, and the Gaiac medals in Hamburg. It is not excluded that he may also make stops in Paris and Berlin to meet with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron, and the Chancellor of Germany, Olaf Scholz.

His presidential tour is set to commence on June 19.

Milei will be the first leader from Latin America to visit Ukraine during the large-scale military aggression by Russia.
