Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky visited Saudi Arabia. During the visit, Zelensky will discuss the exchange of prisoners of war as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Zelensky arrived in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday (27/2) local time. Zelensky also announced his visit to Saudi Arabia via a tweet on his X account.

“The leadership of the kingdom (Saudi Arabia) has contributed to the liberation of our people. I am sure this meeting will also produce results,” Zelensky was quoted as saying AFPWednesday (28/2/2024).



Saudi Arabia is known to have close diplomatic relations with Moscow and Kyiv. The Arab side has also been a mediator in conflicts involving Ukraine and Russia.

The mediation carried out by Saudi Arabia also produced results. In September 2022 there was an agreement between Russia and Ukraine in which 200 captured Ukrainian citizens were released.

“We will also discuss promising areas of economic cooperation and Saudi Arabia’s involvement in Ukraine’s reconstruction,” Zelensky added.

Zelensky said that during his visit to Saudi Arabia he would also discuss the peace formula offered by Ukraine. In that discourse Zelensky called for the complete withdrawal of Russian troops from Ukrainian territory.
