Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen delivered a speech at the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's Parliament, as part of her previously unannounced visit to Kyiv, the Danish TV 2 news channel reported on Sept. 6.

In her speech, Denmark's Head of Government commended the strength of the Ukrainian people in the face of Russian aggression.

TV 2 reported that Frederiksen arrived in Ukraine on Sept. 5, making her third visit to the country since the start of the full-scale war. President Volodymyr Zelensky extended an invitation to the Danish Prime Minister during his own visit to Denmark in August.

Copenhagen has recently pledged major support to Ukraine's defense effort in the form of 19 U.S.-made F-16 fighter jets. Kyiv has been actively seeking to acquire advanced Western jets for months as the Ukrainian Air Force arsenal includes only Soviet-era aircraft such as MiG-29.

Prior to her address at the Parliament, Frederiksen visited a church in Bucha to see an exhibition of war crimes committed by Russian occupying forces in the city last year.

The Danish Prime Minister is not the only foreign official visiting Kyiv, as U.S. State Secretary Antony Blinken arrived in Ukraine's capital today on Sept. 6. According to TV 2, Frederiksen met Blinken in the morning for a bilateral meeting.
