"Prime Minister Donald Tusk begins his visit to Kyiv, where he will meet with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal," the post reads.

This is Tusk's first official visit to Ukraine since his appointment on December 12, 2023.

The head of the Polish government announced his intention to come to Ukraine on December 28. The purpose of the trip was supposed to be the issue of the blockade of the Ukrainian-Polish border.

This is not the first meeting between Tusk and Zelenskyy. In particular, in 2019, they visited Stanytsia Luhanska together. At that time, Tusk still headed the European Council.

At the Davos Forum, Zelenskyy discussed Tusk's official trip with his Polish colleague Andrzej Duda.

On January 13, 2024, Tusk declared that he would not allow any of the representatives of the Polish government to build policy on an anti-Ukrainian position.

On January 16, Polish carriers completely unblocked the border with Ukraine.
