“At the most difficult time in the modern history of UkraineGermany has proven to be our true friend and reliable ally, resolutely standing by the side of the Ukrainian people in the struggle to defend freedom and democratic values.“, wrote.
After meeting Steinmeier, Zelensky was received with military honors by the German Chancellor, Olaf Schölzbefore a first bilateral meeting that was followed by a broader one, albeit in a small circle.
During a joint press conference with the German chancellor, Zelensky was convinced that his country is “almost ready” for victory, referring to the planned counteroffensive that may begin, he added, after a couple more visits to Western partners in search of military support.
“We are motivated and I think we are almost ready for that victory.“, said.
When asked if there are countries that could withdraw their support for Ukraine, Zelensky stated that “there is a risk” that they think about this possibility if the counteroffensive “not successful enough”, and added that, in any case, these are States whose support so far has not been so broad either.
“Regardless of that, we all believe in a win and don’t think about other things. We believe that the victory will be ours”.
