May 29, 2024

On Thursday, June 6, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy will pay a visit to France, in particular, to take part in the celebrations marking the 80th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy.

This was announced by French President Emmanuel Macron, France Bleu reports.

“I will have the opportunity, when President Zelenskyy comes to France for D-Day next week, to receive him and to talk very specifically at that time to announce what else we are going to do to support Ukraine,” Macron said.

An international ceremony marking the 80th anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy will take place on June 6 in Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer, on Omaha Beach.

Many heads of state are expected to attend the ceremony in Normandy.

Russia has been invited to participate in the commemorative events to honor the importance of the dedication and sacrifices of the Soviet peoples during World War II. However, Russian leader Vladimir Putin was not invited to the event because of the war in Ukraine.

Earlier, Politico reported, citing sources, that Zelenskyy intends to visit France on D-Day, and then travel to Italy for the G7 summit. During his trips, he will ask NATO partners to shoot down Russian missiles and finance Ukraine from frozen Russian assets.
