The Ukrainian president will visit Paris to meet with Macron and Scholz after his meeting with Carlos III. The Sunak government announces the arrival of more weapons and the training of Ukrainians as pilots.

Paris is second after London. The president of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenski, began a brief tour of Western Europe on Tuesday, nearly a month after his trip to Washington. After meeting with the British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, and King Carlos III in London on Wednesday, it has been confirmed by a source that he will go to Paris the same day to meet with Emmanuel Macron, the French President, and Olaf Scholz, the German Chancellor. He is anticipated to travel to Brussels on Thursday to attend the European Council.

In order to implement a resistance and offensive strategy against the Russian invasion, Zelensky has always believed the United Kingdom to be the finest platform. The announcement of the Challenger 2 tank transport to Kiev was made initially by the government of Sunak. In light of this, it is not unexpected that the leader of Ukraine picked London to make his request that he be transferred to Brussels 24 hours later in order to deal with Russian aircraft.

The Ukrainian leader addressed the deputies and lords of the British Parliament in a sorrowful speech at Westminster Hall, the most significant historical building in British architecture and the location where Elizabeth II's remains were last month. He also understood how to use the setting of the occasion to further his goals. Zelenski presented the helmet of one of the most well-known Ukrainian pilots to Lindsay Hoyle, speaker of the House of Commons, on which was etched the legend: "We have freedom. Give us wings so we can protect her."

Zelenski stated, "I am confident that this symbol will help us to build our next coalition, the coalition of fighter aircraft, and for that reason I appeal to you and the rest of the world with simpler and more important words: fighters for Ukraine, wings for freedom. This statement drew rousing applause from the hundreds of people who filled the enormous hall, which is a part of the Westminster Palace complex.

Downing Street has been hesitant to send its Typhoon and F-35 planes to Ukraine up to this point, according to a Sunak spokesperson, since "they are incredibly advanced and take months of training to fly." However, it planned to exploit the visit to declare that Ukrainian pilots would be trained as a demonstration of British support for a future shipment.
