Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will be received in Berlin on Sunday, German government sources said on Saturday, as the leader seeks to shore up support from key allies against Russia’s invasion. Zelenskyy will arrive from Italy where he was meeting with Italian officials and Pope Francis on Saturday.
The Ukrainian leader last visited Germany for the Munich Security Council in February last year just before the war broke out. Germany, which is Europe’s largest economy, faced criticism at the start of the war for what some called a hesitant response, but it has become one of Ukraine’s biggest providers of financial and military assistance, ahead of other European powers like France.
