The plane carrying Ukraine's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, to Buenos Aires to attend the inauguration of President-elect Javier Milei, made a stopover in Brazil on Saturday night. This was reported by local media, specifying that the plane landed at the Brazilian Air Force base in Brasilia at 20:15 (local time).
The stop was defined as "technical" and dictated by the need to refuel the aircraft which, at 22:15 p.m., took off again towards the Argentine capital.
The plane had departed from Cape Verde, where Zelensky met with Prime Minister Ulisses Correia e Silva.

Milei settlement, security strengthened for Zelensky's arrival

At least 7,000 men, including presidential guards, agents and members of special forces, will be deployed to ensure the safety of Argentina's president-elect, Javier Milei, and international delegations arriving in Buenos Aires for the inauguration ceremony.
Prevention measures have been further strengthened in the last few hours with the confirmation of the arrival of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, expected as early as the early hours of this morning.
The Avenida de Mayo, the 1.5-kilometer street that connects the Palace of Congress, where Milei will be sworn in, and the Palace of Government (Casa Rosada), where he will greet foreign delegations, has been entirely cordoned off and closed to traffic.
The 7,000 agents will be stationed along the route, with snipers, drones and helicopters under constant surveillance.
Lockheed Martin A-4AR Fightinghawk fighters and IA-63 Pampa fighter-capable trainers supplied to the Argentine Air Force will also be kept on alert and ready for takeoff.
For Europe, the only heads of state and government present, besides Zelensky, will be King Felipe VI of Spain and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Italy will be present with the Minister of University and Research, Anna Maria Bernini, while France has sent the Minister of Transformation, Stanislas Guerini, and the United Kingdom the Minister for the Americas and Overseas Territories, David Rutley.
The 53-year-old ultraliberal Javier Milei will be the 10th president of Argentina since the return of democracy in 1983.
