During a meeting in Rome, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy discussed with Prime Minister of the Italian Republic Giuseppe Conte general policy issues, including the closing of the so-called DPR and LPR offices in Italy.
"I urged the Prime Minister to close the illegal DPR and LPR offices opened in several cities of Italy," the Head of State told the media representatives.
The parties also discussed the case of the warrior of the National Guard of Ukraine Vitalii Markiv imprisoned in Italy.
"I understand that the Prime Minister cannot influence the Italian court. But I showed in detail what happened there, at what distance he was from the murder scene. And that we have to take the guy out,” the President said.
Vitalii Markiv's mother thanked Volodymyr Zelenskyy for his efforts to release her son.
“We are very grateful for this visit. We are really happy. It is very important for Vitalii. With such support, Vitali believes that everything will end well. He is ready and wants to return to Ukraine,” the woman said.
