The EU-Ukraine summit will be held on 3 February at a location yet to be decided

European Union President Charles Michel and European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen will hold a summit with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on February 3 next year, an EU spokesman said on Thursday.

The location of the summit has not yet been determined.

“I can confirm that the EU-Ukraine summit will take place on February 3 and that there is an open invitation to President Zelenskiy to visit Brussels,” said Barend Leyts, spokesman for the president of EU leaders.

The spokesman clarified that the invitation to Zelenskiy to visit Brussels does not mean that it is there where the summit will be held.

Officials said the topic of the summit would likely be how the EU can continue to support Ukraine vis-à-vis Russia. The leaders of the EU’s two key institutions — the Commission and the Council — would also assess Ukraine’s path to EU membership.

Zelenskiy has regularly attended EU summits by videoconference since the start of the Russian invasion in February. On Wednesday, he made his first in-person trip to Washington since the start of the war.
