Before the start of the conference, air raid sirens rang out across Ukraine. The last such summit was held in Kyiv in October 2021, a few months before the start of the war. Upon arrival in Kyiv, Michel said in a tweet, “There will be no wavering in our resolve. We will support (Ukraine) every step of the way on your journey to the European Union.” Ukraine wants to join the 27-nation bloc, and formally submitted its application in June last year. However, this could take years as it requires Ukraine to undertake far-reaching reforms.

Switzerland’s newspaper New Jurcher Zeitung has claimed that US President Joe Biden has made a secret plan to end the war. Under this plan, he has offered 20 percent of Ukraine’s border to Russia only. Russia has termed this report as a rumour. Russia says that CIA director William Burns has never put such a proposal in front of him. America has also distanced itself from this report.
