In another order, the German Foreign Minister, annalena baerbock, arrived this Saturday in kyiv in an unannounced visit with the purpose, he said, of “showing that we will be supporting Ukraine as long as necessary with arms shipments and with humanitarian and financial aid.”

I have come to Ukraine to show that they can continue to trust us”, he said upon arrival, according to local media.

Baerbock stressed that for six months Ukrainians have been fighting “for their lives, their families and their friends” with which they defend “not only their right to peace and freedom but also our European order”.

The green politician traveled to kyiv from Poland in a special train accompanied by a small delegation.

Baerbock will meet as his Ukrainian counterpart Dimitri Kuleba. Other points of the program have not been revealed for security reasons.

With his visit, Baerbock said, he also wants to send a signal to Germany against the danger of fatigue among citizens in efforts to maintain solidarity with Ukraine.

According to the minister, it is clear to her that Russian President Vladimir “Putin bets that we get tired of being in solidarity with Ukraine”.

“That’s something you shouldn’t be successful at,” he added.
