(ANSA-AFP) - KYIV, JUN 16 - The leaders of France, Germany and Italy visited Kyiv on Thursday in a show of European support for Ukraine, as Russia presses its brutal offensive in the east of the country. French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi arrived in the Ukrainian capital by train from Poland, according to an AFP reporter travelling with them. Asked by a journalist why he had come to Ukraine, Macron said: "For a message of European unity." Scholz told German daily Bild that they "want to show not only solidarity, but also assure that the help that we're organising -- financial, humanitarian, but also, when it comes to weapons -- will continue". "And that we will continue it as long as it is necessary for Ukraine's fight" against Moscow, he said. (ANSA-AFP).
