The EU is preparing to host President Volodymyr Zelensky at a summit in Brussels on Feb. 9-10 but security concerns could obstruct it, the Financial Times reported on Feb. 6, citing its sources.
“Frankly speaking, there are big risks if I go somewhere,” Zelensky told reporters on Feb. 3.
The visit would be Zelensky’s second visit abroad since the beginning of Russia's full-scale invasion after his visit to Washington in December 2022.
The potential trip comes amid Ukranie's efforts to get more Western weapons to repel a potential large-scale Russian offensive.
An undisclosed adviser to the Ukrainian military earlier told the Financial Times that Russia could launch a major offensive within 10 days.
Ukraine’s intelligence warned on Feb. 2 that Russia was redeploying additional assault groups and military equipment ahead of “a massive offensive” to capture the Donbas by March.
