The Ukrainian ex-boxing world champion Wladimir Klitschko is hoping for a visit from Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) in Ukraine.

“I wish that Olaf Scholz would travel to Kyiv and come to Ukraine to see with his own eyes,” said the brother of the mayor of Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko, to the television channel RTL/ntv on Wednesday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

According to Klitschko, it does not have to be a visit to the area around the Ukrainian capital, which was particularly affected by the destruction caused by the war. He no longer wanted “that he sees what we saw in Bucha, Hostomel and Irpin”. Kyiv was also affected by the war.

He also demanded that the German arms deliveries to Ukraine, which had been attacked by Russia, be implemented. “I wish that loud words will also lead to deeds. A lot is reported to the outside world, a lot is said, but in practice you don’t see that much,” criticized the 46-year-old. “And the more time goes by, the more people lose their lives in Ukraine.”
