Chancellor Scholz holds crisis talks with Ukraine's Zelenskyy in Kyiv | DW News



German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Ukrainian President Vodolymyr Zelenskyy have held talks in Kyiv amid fears Russia might invade Ukraine. After the meeting, Scholz stressed Germany’s support for Ukraine.

“Germany stands close by your side,” Scholz said at a press conference after the sit down. “My country is impressed by the democratic movement in Ukraine and supports the European path it has taken since 2014,” he added.

Scholz has held firm on Germany’s opposition to sending lethal weaponry to Ukraine amid a massive Russian troop buildup.

Germany has said it plans to send more than 300 troops to Lithuania to bolster NATO’s eastern flank.

The first contingent of German troop reinforcements arrived in Kaunas on Monday.

70 troops arrived on an A400M German Luftwaffe plane at Kaunas airport, along with around 100 howitzer cannons and military vehicles.

The German Defense Ministry had announced plans last week to send an additional 380 soldiers to Lithuania and more arrivals are expected throughout the week.
