In Brussels, not everyone was delighted with the trip of three PMs to Kyiv.

 On Tuesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Deputy Prime Minister Jarosław Kaczyński, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, and Prime Minister of Slovenia Janez Janša visited Kyiv, where they met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Szmyhal.

The Belgian press covers yesterday's events at length. The "De Standaard" daily reported that the visit of the prime ministers was not warmly welcomed by everyone in Brussels. It is true that the expedition of the prime ministers was agreed with both Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel, but it was supposed to "raise some eyebrows in Brussels."

"By their visit, the three prime ministers wanted to make it clear that the EU should do more for Ukraine," says De Standaard, adding that, in Warsaw's opinion, the EU's efforts so far have been insufficient.

The daily "Het Nieuwsblad" draws attention to the appeal of Jarosław Kaczyński (first on the left) regarding the international mission, including NATO, in Ukraine.

"Jarosław Kaczyński is the twin brother of Lech Kaczyński, the former president of Poland, who died in 2010 along with 95 other Poles in a plane crash in Russia" - notes the VRT NWS portal. The website points out that the famous visit of President Kaczyński to Tbilisi in 2008 prevented Russia from seizing the capital of Georgia.
