He would apologize for calling the chancellor an “offended liverwurst”.said Melnyk. The diplomat made this statement when Scholz initially refused to travel to Kyiv himself after Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier had been uninvited from Ukraine. Melnyk judged the Prospects that there will be a personal meeting with the Chancellor as uncertain: “Let’s see, I hope so.” But it is “good manners when someone leaves that he is also received”.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had Melnyk recalled from the post of ambassador in Berlin at the beginning of July. After his return to Kyiv, Melnyk will continue to work in his country’s diplomatic service. He did not want to comment on reports that he would become deputy foreign minister. The government must decide that.
