The trip of Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS), Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša to Kiev sparked not only admirable reactions, but also fear and criticism. Some European diplomats even believe that their visit to Ukraine could be a World War III detonator.
Fiala, Morawiecki and Jansha headed to Kiev by train, they were supposed to arrive at the local station between 3pm and 6pm. Although the head of the Council of Europe, Charles Michel and the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, dedicated the way to them, there was also strong criticism in the Brussels corridor.
The organization is said to be non-detailed, and the visit could go wrong, he wrote Indonesia journalist Dave Keating, familiar with the attitudes of key people in EU institutions. “Some EU officials were angry at the visit, saying they could start a third world war,“she says.
“They allegedly didn’t consult the other allies and, oddly enough, announced the trip before they even got on the train,Von der Leyen and Michel learned about the trip at Friday’s summit in Versailles, but other EU and NATO leaders reportedly did not receive the information until Tuesday.
Three EU prime ministers are planning a meeting with Ukrainian Presidents Volodymyr Zelensk and Denys myhal. According to Fiala, the main goal is to express the EU’s firm support for Ukraine, its freedom and independence.
“At the same time, we will present an extensive support package for Ukraine and its citizens during the visit. The international community was also informed about this visit by international organizations, including the United Nations,” said the Czech Prime Minister.
Another EU perm representative here in Brussels is privately angry about this visit, which risks becoming a “spark for World War 3” as one official put it.
It appeared to be uncoordinated with the other allies and, surprisingly, had been announced beforehand before they departed by train across Ukraine.

Moscow put nuclear weapons on high alert three weeks ago. Putin also warned the West not to get involved in the conflict in Ukraine. Russia will automatically consider the declaration of a no-fly zone, which Zelensky has repeatedly requested, as an attack.
Fiala pushes for toughest sanctions against Russia. More in the Nova TV report:
