Ursula von der Leyen makes unannounced visit to Kyiv - her sixth visit since Russia's invasion

The European Commission president's visit comes ahead of a report next week that will detail Ukraine's progress in its bid to join the EU.

"The EU’s financial support to rebuild Ukraine as a modern, prosperous democracy," she wrote on the platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

"And how we will continue to make Russia pay for its war of aggression."

More to come.
