Foreign ministry spokesperson Alexandros Papaioannou repeated that Greece is prepared to send humanitarian aid to Mariupol, at a press briefing on Wednesday.
He noted that Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias intends to head this humanitarian aid mission to Ukraine if the conditions permit, while explaining that nobody is in position to know when the mission will take place.
Regarding the possibility of Dendias visiting Kiev, Papaioannou made it clear that Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, in a phone call with Dendias the previous week, had stressed that there is an open invitation to visit the Ukrainian capital. Kuleba also thanked Dendias for his proposal to send humanitarian aid, while underlining that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky thanked him as well.
With regard to when Dendias’ visit to Kiev might take place, the spokesperson said that there was nothing that could be announced at present.
