Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy will visit Germany at the end of next week. This will be his second visit to the country since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion, reports Tagesspiegel.

According to the media, Zelenskyy is planning his visit during the Munich Security Conference, which will take place from February 16 to 18.

The program and exact schedule are still classified for security reasons.

The chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Christoph Heusgen, did not want to confirm to the media the fact that the Ukrainian president would participate in the event. However, he said that the organizers are making efforts to ensure the presence of the head of state from Kyiv.

"An invitation has been sent to Zelenskyy," he said.

Zelenskyy's visit to Germany

On May 14 last year, the President of Ukraine paid his first official visit to Germany since the beginning of the full-scale war.

Germany's assistance to Ukraine

Germany has been one of Ukraine's main allies since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion.

Berlin has already provided the Ukrainian military with Patriot and IRIS-T anti-aircraft missile systems, Leopard 2 tanks, Marder infantry fighting vehicles, and many other pieces of equipment.

On January 31, Germany handed over a new military aid package to Ukraine. It included air defense missiles, all-terrain vehicles, and armored personnel carriers.

In addition, German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach assured Ukraine of further assistance and cooperation in the healthcare sector.
