Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will land in Sofia on a government plane.
There are extraordinary security measures in the center of the capital. There are police teams stationed along “Brussels” and “Tsarigradsko shose” boulevards, from where official delegations usually move.
According to NOVA and according to the data of the flightradar24 application, the Airbus A-319 government plane took off from Sofia at 7:12 a.m. and landed in the Moldovan capital Chisinau shortly after 8:00 a.m. Bulgarian time. The return flight of the machine to the Bulgarian capital has not yet started.
Zelensky’s visits are always closely watched and kept secret until the last for security reasons. It often happens that his program changes at the last minute.
This is the 17th visit of the Ukrainian president abroad since the beginning of the war. His first official visit was to the US on December 22 last year. Zelensky has been to a total of 13 countries on three continents.
