President Volodymyr Zelensky arrived in Albania on Feb. 27 to attend the second Ukraine-Balkans summit this week.

Albanian Foreign Minister Igli Hasani said on X that Zelensky's arrival is "a pivotal moment for fostering bilateral ties, and standing in solidarity with Ukraine in its heroic fight against Russia’s aggression."

The Ukrainian President will meet with several Balkan leaders in Tirana on Feb. 28 for the "Ukraine-Southeast Europe Summit."
