In early June, Bild reported that German Foreign Minister Annalena Burbock was refusing to meet with Ukrainian Ambassador Andriy Melnyk.

The Federal Foreign Ministry explained that the matter was in the different statuses of diplomats, and added that Burbock was on permanent contact with his Ukrainian counterpart Dmitry Kuleba.

At the same time, the publication notes that other ministers are not embarrassed by the difference: Minister of Economy Robert Habek, Minister of Finance Christian Lindner, Minister of Defense Kristina met with Melnik Lambrecht and others.

Melnik repeatedly spoke sharply about the leadership of Germany. So, in May, he called German Chancellor Olaf Scholz a “offended liverwurst”.
