According to information from “Bild am Sonntag”, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) wants to travel to Kyiv before the G7 summit at the end of June.

He is planning the visit with French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, the newspaper reported on Saturday, citing French and Ukrainian government sources. A spokesman for the federal government did not want to comment on the report on Saturday evening.

According to “BamS”, Paris and Berlin have been negotiating a joint visit to Kyiv for some time. Macron only wanted to drive after the French parliamentary elections. Taking the Italian head of government with him is said to have been an idea from France. Scholz, Macron and Draghi want to set a sign of European unity with their trip.
