French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna will visit Kyiv on Monday for talks with President Volodymyr Zelensky, the foreign ministry said in a statement, AFP reported.

"The minister wants to show France's solidarity with the Ukrainian people and its full determination to reinforce its support... from a humanitarian and financial point of view, as well as in terms of supplying defense equipment," it said.

Colonna will be the highest-ranking French official to visit Kyiv since Russia began a military operation in Ukraine on February 24.

In addition to the capital, Colonna will also visit the town of Bucha.
