Belgium: PM De Croo march for Eastern Europe visit today


Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo leaves from Melsbroek airport for a three-day visit to Slovakia, Poland, Romania and Moldova on Monday; to discuss the political, military and humanitarian consequences of Russia’s war in Ukraine.

According to the reports, several official meetings are planned during the visit, and De Crew will also participate in several field visits, especially in the humanitarian sector. De Cru aims to show Belgium’s solidarity with the European countries most affected by the massive influx of refugees.


The Belgian delegation will visit the refugee reception center in Ceroc, near the Polish capital Warsaw, and meet a convoy of six trucks chartered by B-FAST (Belgian Humanitarian Rapid Response Unit) in Rzczów, near the Ukrainian border.

Then, De Croo will visit the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the UNICEF office at the Medica border crossing. Poland is at the forefront of refugee reception.

Since the beginning of the war, some 4.4 million Ukrainians have fled their country, of which 2.5 million have passed through Poland.

Belgium is present in the Baltic region on the military front with four F-16s based in Estonia and carrying out an air policing mission recently extended to Poland.

In the days following the start of the conflict, 300 soldiers were also deployed to Romania under French command in Constanta on the Black Sea as part of the Nato Rapid Reaction Force (VJTF).

The troops will be visited by De Croo, following an earlier visit by Defence Minister Ludivine Dedonder in mid-March.
