Macron delays Kyiv visit amid tensions over Ukraine comments

French President Emmanuel Macron has pushed back a long-planned visit to Ukraine amid tensions with allies over his increasingly hawkish comments on Russia.

The visit has been delayed several times and was initially planned for February, before being pushed back to mid-March. On Sunday, a statement from the French Presidential Palace said the visit would take place "in the next few weeks."

The Elysée Palace rejected suggestions that security concerns played a role in the postponement, after a Russian missile hit near Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during a visit to Ukraine last week. "There are no worries in terms of security," an aide to the president said Monday.
