In one of the most high profile visits to Ukraine since the beginning of the war, Macron, Schulz and Draghi, could travel to Kyiv as early as today. The Financial Times has the latest.

French president Emmanuel Macron and German and Italian leaders Olaf Scholz and Mario Draghi are planning a joint trip to Ukraine as early as Thursday to show support for the country as it resists the Russian invasion and to discuss its bid to apply for EU membership, according to senior diplomats and officials in European capitals.

Although the trip has not been officially confirmed, the leaders of the EU’s three largest economies are expected to meet Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy in a high-profile display of western solidarity with Ukraine.
