After a visit to Finland, Zelenskyy heads to the Netherlands

May 4, 2023

After a foreign visit to Finland, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy has traveled to the Netherlands. According to Yevropeiska Pravda, this was reported by several Dutch media outlets, including ANP and RTL Nieuws.


The media outlets note that the Dutch government plane departed from Helsinki on Wednesday evening, where the Ukrainian president was on a visit, and it has already landed at Schiphol International Airport.

According to RTL Nieuws, Zelensky will deliver a speech in The Hague on Thursday titled "No Peace Without Justice." The location of the speech is likely due to the fact that the city is home to the International Criminal Court, which issued arrest warrants for Putin and the Russian Children's Commissioner.

NOS notes that on May 4, the Netherlands commemorates the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of World War II and Subsequent Armed Conflicts, but suggests that the Ukrainian president's visit was not timed to coincide with this date.

For Zelenskyy, the visit to the Netherlands will be his first not only since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, but also as president in general.
