Argentina's President Javier Milei may visit Kyiv this June as part of a broader European tour in a sign of support for Ukraine, the Infobae news portal reported on March 5.

This would be the first visit by a South American leader to Ukraine since the outbreak of the full-scale war and one of the few trips made to the besieged country by a Latin American leader. Guatemala's then-President Alejandro Giammattei visited Kyiv as the first Latin American head of state in 2022.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky visited Argentina last December to attend Milei's inauguration. On the occasion of the visit, the two leaders held a meeting in Buenos Aires, during which Zelensky thanked Milei for his "personal energy in support of Ukraine."

Milei's planned tour is expected to also include a visit to Spain, France, and Germany, Infobae wrote.

Every Western decision is late by a year, says Zelensky.

Western partners have been deliberating key decisions on military assistance for Ukraine for "too long," President Volodymyr Zelensky said on May 20 in an interview with Reuters. The president described the delivery of aid, particularly badly needed air defense, as "one big step forward, but before that, two steps back."
