Macron, Scholz and Draghi in Kyiv. What can Europe do?
The President of France, the Federal Chancellor of Germany, and the Prime Minister of Italy arrived in Kyiv on the same train (they were soon joined by the President of Romania), and every moment of this visit, which many in the Ukrainian capital already consider historic, was filled with symbolism. Air raid sirens over the Ukrainian capital (the Russians, of course, could not restrain themselves), a trip to Irpen, mutilated by the occupiers, words of solidarity. But what can European leaders actually offer Ukrainians?
Actually, not so much yet. Of course, arms deliveries are very important, but decisions to continue and increase military assistance do not depend on the arrival of high-ranking officials. Candidate status for EU membership, if indeed granted, is an important element of moral support, but so far nothing more: even months, if not years, will pass before accession negotiations begin, and EU membership itself takes years, if not years. decades.
