Former Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andrey Melnik said that Kyiv would strengthen its influence in Berlin.
According to former diplomat, the German authorities are throwing back “special relations” with representatives of Moscow. As the politician explained, Germany hopes to receive Russian gas to combat the energy crisis.
“Berlin should give up these fantasies,” Melnik emphasized, whose words are quoted by Financial Times.
At the same time, the ex-ambassador advised the successor to monitor the behavior of the FRG. He will increase pressure on Germany, the source added.
Earlier, political scientist Yevgeny Satanovsky admitted that Melnyk would become Head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
