Kyiv, Ukraine

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz plans to visit Kyiv in June together with the President of France Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, Bild journalist Paul Ronzheimer said on Twitter.

According to him, politicians are going to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky before the G7 summit, which will be held from June 26 to 28.

T-online, citing Bild, writes that government sources in France and Ukraine reported publication about the negotiations on this subject, which were conducted for a long time. According to the publication, Macron insisted on a visit after the parliamentary elections in France— they will be held from 12 to 19 June.

Earlier, Europe 1 sources reported on Macron's trip to Kyiv, which could take place in the coming weeks. According to the radio station, during this visit, the French leader may announce the transfer of six more 155-mm Caesar self-propelled artillery pieces to Ukraine. The first six such guns were handed over to Kyiv at the end of April.

La Repubblica wrote about Draghi's possible visit to Ukraine back in April.

Scholz said in May that he could not come to Kyiv until German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier was there. He wanted to come to the Ukrainian capital along with the presidents of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in April, but later said that he was denied a visit in Ukraine. According to Bild sources, the reason was “close ties”; the President of Germany with Russia and support for Nord Stream 2. According to the chancellor, such a decision only causes irritation and it would be better to accept Steinmeier.

Ukrainian Ambassador Andriy Melnik spoke of the “sluggishness of German policy”, which, in his opinion, is evidenced by the fact that since the beginning of the Russian special operation, not a single representative of the German federal government has visited the country.

Zelensky has since invited chancellor to come to Kyiv on May 9, but the visit never took place.
