The prime ministers of Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovenia have crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border on their way to the Ukrainian capital of Kiev by train, Chief of the Polish Prime Minister's Chancellery Michal Dworczyk said at a briefing on Tuesday, according to TASS.

"The train on which [Polish] Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Deputy Prime Minister for Security Jaroslaw Kaczynski and the prime ministers of the Czech Republic and Slovenia are traveling crossed the Polish-Ukrainian border about an hour ago. The delegation is on its way to Kiev, where it will hold meetings with [Ukrainian] President Zelensky and Prime Minister Shmygal," he said.

"The delegation represents the European Union," Dworczyk said. "Preparations for the visit went on for days, it was being kept secret," he noted. According to the Polish official, a decision about the trip was made at a recent EU summit in France’s Versailles in coordination with European Council President Charles Michel and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. NATO, the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) and the United Nations have been informed of the visit.

According to Warsaw, the goal of the visit is to reaffirm the European Union’s unconditional support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence, as well as to provide a broad package of assistance to the Ukrainian government and society. Dworczyk said that all the details would be announced at a press conference in Kiev.
