    "On the eve of this visit, we have a good message from Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz regarding Germany's readiness to build up air defense and artillery for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Now Germany is among TOP 5 countries and institutions in terms of the amount of financial support for Ukraine," the Prime Minister noted.

    Denys Shmyhal has said, Ukraine also expects that the German leaders will further demonstrate leadership in order to provide Ukraine with the next tranche of macro-financial assistance from the EU in the amount of EUR 9 billion as soon as possible. So far, Ukraine has already received EUR 1 billion, and expects EUR 8 billion to be provided in the coming months.

    In general, according to the Head of Government, international partners have directed to Ukraine USD 17.5 billion since the beginning of the full-scale invasion of russia: "We are grateful to everyone for the help, which allows us to ensure the economic stability of our state. At the same time, such stability of the economy is the basis for victory in the war and the liberation of our territories from the occupiers."
