The Japanese international broadcaster NHK already showed how the prime minister boarded a train in Poland to Ukraine.
Pledge of solidarity
According to the ministry, Kishida will personally inform Zelensky that he has “respect for the courage and perseverance of the Ukrainian people who have stood up to defend the fatherland.”
Japan also pledges continued solidarity and unwavering support to Ukraine, as does the G7, the club of the seven major industrialized western countries of which Japan currently presides.
Ukraine is said to have asked Kishida to visit Ukraine at the beginning of this year, but the Japanese government leader said at the time that he had to think about it.
The Japanese prime minister was the only leader of a G7 country who had not visited Ukraine in person since the Russian invasion began more than a year ago.
