Zelensky halts international travel in response to Russian offensive in Ukraine’s north and south

The Russian offensive has put immense pressure on the Ukrainian army, forcing President Volodymyr Zelensky to cancel his official trips in the coming days. This includes his scheduled visit to Spain on May 17, as well as a trip to Portugal that was also canceled.

The Spanish Royal Family confirmed Zelensky’s cancellation of his visit to Spain, which was followed by another canceled trip to Portugal. Zelensky’s press secretary, Sergi Nikiforov, announced the postponement of all international events on the president’s agenda in the days to come. This decision was made while United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken was on an official visit to Ukraine, announcing a military aid package worth $2 billion.

In response to Russia’s continued offensive and its efforts to advance towards the city of Kharkiv, the Ukrainian army has announced the liberation of Robotine by the Dnepr group. This marks a significant advancement and comes amid ongoing battles and casualties reported in that region. Moscow’s advances have also led to evacuations in border settlements in Ukraine.

President Zelensky had been planning a trip abroad at a time when he needed it most – during his visit to Europe – but had to shift his focus internally due to Russia’s ongoing conflict with Ukraine. The situation remains tense with fighting continuing in various regions of Ukraine, threatening stability not only for Ukraine but also for its neighboring areas.
