KYIV (Reuters) - Four Western leaders, including the prime ministers of Italy, Canada, and Belgium, arrived in Kyiv on Saturday 24 February 2024 to show solidarity with Ukraine on the second anniversary of Russia's invasion.

Italy's Giorgia Meloni, Canada's Justin Trudeau, Belgium's Alexander De Croo and the president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, travelled to the Ukrainian capital together overnight by train from neighbouring Poland, the Italian government said in a statement.

Meloni was due to host a videoconference later in the day from Kyiv that will involve leaders from the Group of Seven major democracies, with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky invited to join the discussion.
