Jakarta. President Joko “Jokowi'' Widodo and First Lady Iriana on Wednesday morning local time have safely arrived in Kyiv, Ukraine, for a peace mission.

The president arrived at the Kyiv central train station after an 11-hour trip from Poland. According to the Cabinet Secretariat, the Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Dmytro Senik greeted Jokowi upon his arrival at the station. 

Taras Kachka, the Ukrainian-Indonesian intergovernmental relations commission head, as well as officials from the Indonesian Embassy in Kyiv, were also present. 

Jokowi will kick off his tour in Ukraine by visiting the war-damaged Lipky apartment complex in Irpin.
