TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The planned visit of President Joko Widodo or Jokowi to Ukraine and Russia has been prepared carefully by the Presidential Security Detail or Paspampres given the ongoing conflict between the two countries.

The Paspampres commander Major General Tri Budi Utomo guaranteed the President's security for the visit slated for next week. According to him, his side has made various security scenarios and tools for the head of state.

Budi explained that his troops had also been holding exercises since the last few weeks prior to the departure.

“We have practiced [ways] to escape him (the President),” Budi said when contacted on Thursday, June 23, 2022.

A total of 39 personnel of Paspampres will guard Jokowi, consisting of security guards who will continue to stick to the President, the advance team, and the special team who will stand by at the location.

“We have also prepared equipment, such as helmets, [buleltproof] vests if he wants to wear it during the activities there,” said Budi, adding that the team would also carry long-barreled firearms with unlimited ammunition.

He claimed that the Ukrainian authority had given permission for Indonesia’s security detail to bring that necessary equipment.

The news about Jokowi’s visit to Kyiv and Moscow at the end of June 2022 was confirmed by the Indonesian Minister of Foreign Affairs Retno Marsudi. In Moscow, he was scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, while in Kyiv, he will meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
