Together with Macron and Draghi: According to the report, Scholz wants to travel to Kyiv

Many European leaders have traveled to Ukraine to express their solidarity with the country since the Russian war of aggression. Chancellor Scholz was not among them. According to a media report, however, a trip to Kyiv is planned before the G7 summit at the end of June.

According to a media report, Chancellor Olaf Scholz is planning a joint trip to Kyiv with French President Emmanuel Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi before the G7 summit at the end of June. This was reported by "Bild am Sonntag", citing Ukrainian and French government circles. A government spokesman told ntv that this could not be confirmed.

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.

Unlike many other top European politicians, Scholz has not been in Kyiv since the start of the Ukraine war. The background to this is, among other things, a controversy over the Ukrainian government disinviting Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. However, this conflict has now been resolved. Scholz had recently said that he would only travel there if there were specific things to discuss.

When asked about his own visit plans in view of the intensive travel activities by German ministers to Ukraine, Scholz said at a press conference in Bulgaria this Saturday: "I welcome all of these trips. (...) They all make sense." That is "always the benchmark for every trip". Several members of the cabinet have now visited Ukraine, including Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock, Health Minister Karl Lauterbach, Agriculture Minister Cem Özdemir and Minister of State for Culture Claudia Roth.
