Kyiv will soon be able to reopen its main international airport because Ukraine has become progressively stronger over the last year and can now provide the necessary security for the site, President Zelensky’s chief of staff said on Friday.

Speaking at Boryspil International Airport during a tenth meeting regarding the implementation of Ukraine’s Peace Formula, Andriy Yermak told a gathering of international diplomats: “This return to the elements of peace is possible because Ukraine has grown stronger.

“We are now capable of providing security for this site. Thanks to our defence forces and our friends, your countries.

“I am certain that the symbolic boarding cards that you were given when you came in today will soon turn into real ones.”
