Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will attend the inauguration of his Argentine counterpart, Javier Milea. It's scheduled for Sunday, December 10, according to TN.

According to the material, plans for Zelenskyy to visit Buenos Aires were confirmed by unnamed sources in the Ukrainian embassy.

TN specifies that the Ukrainian president had been on the guest list for the inauguration from the beginning, but his attendance was not expected.

Journalists consider this trip a significant political gesture towards the region, potentially marking Zelenskyy's first visit to Latin America since the full-scale invasion of Ukrainian territories by Russian forces.

Zelenskyy's invitation to the inauguration is seen as a clear sign of support for Ukraine from Milea. Argentina's stance towards Ukraine has sharply shifted after his victory in the November elections.

Milea invited the Ukrainian president to visit Argentina during a phone call after his election victory and offered his country as a possible location for a regional summit regarding the war.


In late November, presidential elections were held in Argentina, won by TikTok star and U.S. supporter Javier Milea.

He openly expressed support for Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. Additionally, Milea decided to withdraw Argentina's application for BRICS membership, which includes the aggressor country.

Milea has already had a phone conversation with Zelenskyy, who invited him to visit our country.
