Josep Borrell, the EU's chief diplomat, arrived in Kyiv on Feb. 6, he announced in a statement on social media.
His arrival signals the continued commitment of the European bloc to support Ukraine against Russian aggression. The EU's backing is ever more crucial now as $60 billion from the U.S. remains stuck in Congress due to political infighting.
"Here to discuss with our Ukrainian friends the EU's unwavering support to Ukraine - on military side, on the financial side with the new Ukraine facility, as well as on the EU reform path," Borrell said.
Borrell is accompanied by his advisor, Zaki Laidi, who announced his arrival on social media earlier on Feb. 6. This is Borrell's fourth visit to Ukraine since the outbreak of the full-scale war.
After visiting Poland, Borrell confirmed on Feb. 5 that he is heading to Ukraine next, repeating calls for more assistance for the embattled country.
There is also the ongoing debate on reforming the bloc's Ukraine defense funding mechanism, which has been largely depleted.
