Zelensky hails Turkish leader’s visit as Russian strikes batter Kharkiv

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky hails a visit to his war-ravaged country from Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan as Russian strikes batter the eastern region of Kharkiv, leaving several dead and dozens injured.

“The visit of the President of Turkey to Ukraine is a powerful message of support from such a powerful country,” Zelensky says in a statement.

Erdogan and Guterres, who are due to hold a press conference with Zelensky in Lviv, were key brokers of a deal last month allowing the resumption of grain exports from Ukraine after Russia’s invasion blocked essential global supplies.
