The Chinese delegation traveled to Kyiv via Dubai and Warsaw. It took a long time, especially the last part of the journey, Li Hui said.
The Chinese Government’s Special Representative for Eurasian Affairs, Li Hui, said he encountered traffic disruptions on his way to Ukraine. He spoke about it today at a briefing by the China Public Diplomacy Association.
“In terms of transportation, as we have seen, there are not too many amenities,” said the Chinese representative.
He emphasized that earlier, in the status of a diplomat, he visited European states more than once.
“However, this time everything was different than before. When we went to Ukraine, there were no direct flights,” added the special representative.
According to him, the delegation from Beijing first arrived in Dubai, and from there went to Warsaw, where there were no train tickets. Because of this, Li Hui and his companions were forced to travel to Kyiv by car.
“At midnight, we reached the (Polish-Ukrainian) border, and from there we reached Kiev by train. We traveled (from the border to the Ukrainian capital) for 14 hours. On the way back, we still bought tickets from Kiev to Warsaw and spent 18 hours to cover this distance stop every 15-20 minutes,” the diplomat summarized.
It can be recalled that in May, Li Hui visited Ukraine, Poland, France, Germany, the EU headquarters and Russia.
