Along with him, the ambassadors to Hungary, the Czech Republic, Norway and India were also dismissed.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy dismissed the extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassadors of Ukraine in five countries : Germany, Hungary, the Kingdom of Norway, the Czech Republic and India.
This is evidenced by the relevant decrees published on the website of the OP.play video
In particular, the president fired Andriy Melnyk, the ambassador to Germany, who became a fairly well-known figure in the country thanks to the merciless criticism of local authorities for the slowness in arms supplies to Ukraine .
The day before, the diplomat reminded the government of Olaf Scholz about the four months of a full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine and asked why until now he had not allowed the Marder BMP to be provided to our state .
We also recall that earlier the German publication Bild reported that Melnyk would be hired for a new job as Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine.
As UNIAN reported earlier, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, responding to criticism due to the low intensity of arms supplies to Ukraine, said that his state, for objective reasons, cannot send weapons to Ukraine with the same intensity as the US authorities do.
According to recent studies , the United States and Germany have transferred less than 40% of the promised weapons to Ukraine. At the same time, actual arms deliveries to Ukraine have decreased compared to previous months.
