Ukrainian ambassador praises Berlin’s support against Russian invasion
Half a year after the start of the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine, the outgoing Ukrainian ambassador in Berlin, Andriy Melnykwho praised German support for his country. “Germany has made a quantum leap in these six months of war”said Melnyk on Wednesday in the ZDF “Morgenmagazin”.
“Considering that we argued about helmets in the beginning, today Germany also supplies heavy weapons, and that’s a good thing“, said Melnyk. Unfortunately, negotiations and Peace can only be achieved through Kiev’s military successes.
On his earlier harsh criticism to Berlin and his sometimes insulting statements about Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) Melnyk did not go into the interview. He merely said that he was committed to the fact that German politics was “shaken up” from his own “dream that everything is fine”. Germany is now also aware that everything must be done to help Ukraine.
Ukraine appreciates that Germany is now ready “to give us a hand”. The outgoing ambassador expressly included the SPD in his praisewhose Russia course he had previously repeatedly sharply criticized.
The debate that the Support within the German population could wane in the face of rising energy prices, Melnyk follows “with concern” in his own words. But he hopes that this support “remains so robust that Ukraine does not have to fear being left in the lurch.” Ultimately, the war is about defending democratic values.
He doesn’t believe that Germany will turn around, said Melnyk, who will remain ambassador in Berlin until October. “We are counting on the tremendous empathy and support from the people we have experienced”. His compatriots were welcomed with open arms, and “we, the Ukrainians, will be grateful for that for decades to come.” (AFP)
