Leaders of France, Germany, and Italy head to Kyiv

France, Germany, and Italy leaders are now going to Kyiv on June 16 as the United States has announced $1 billion worth of new arms for embattled Ukrainian forces.

Kyiv's troops are now resisting a fierce fight in Donbas, as the Russian forces are pushing to seize a swathe of eastern and southern Ukraine.

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi are visiting Kyiv to support these troops. According to AFP, these three leaders have left Poland on a morning train.

Mr. Macron said, "we, the European Union, need to send clear political signals to Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, who have been resisting heroically for several months now."

Italian Prime minister Draghi has backed Ukraine's hope of joining the bloc and made a case for the EU. The European Commission has said it will recommend Ukraine's membership in the European Union.

On the other hand, on June 15, President Joe Biden announced the new U.S arms package, featuring howitzers, ammunition, anti-ship missile systems, and additional rockets for new artillery systems, which will help Ukraine to fight.

Biden has said that "the United States will stand by Ukraine as it defends its democracy and support its sovereignty and territorial integrity in the face of unprovoked Russian aggression.", "The bravery, resilience, and determination of the Ukrainian people continue to inspire the world."

While the Russian aggression continues, all tactics are being played to stop this aggression. But all tactics seem to have failed.
