Ukrainian Ambassador to Berlin Andriy Melnik doubted that the German authorities really support Kyiv. He wrote about this on Twitter.
The reason was the publication in Die Welt, which provides data from the Federal Statistical Office on the supply of Russian energy. From them it follows that in the first quarter Germany paid Russia 15.8 billion euros - more than ever.
"Do you call this solidarity with Ukraine? Or is business above all else?" Miller asked.
The diplomat more than once allowed himself harsh statements about the German authorities. Thus, he condemned Berlin for being indecisive in the issue of military assistance and stated that the unwillingness to supply tanks and infantry fighting vehicles to Ukraine would be for Germany "a shame that will go down in history."
In addition, he accused former chancellor Angela Merkel of a lack of self-criticism, and called her successor Olaf Scholz an "offended liverwurst."
At the request of Ukraine, Turkey detained a Russian-flagged cargo ship as it was carrying grain from the port of Berdyansk. The problem will exacerbate when Recep Erdogan leaves politics.
