In particular, the president fired Andrii Melnyk, the ambassador to Germany, who became very famous in that country thanks to merciless criticism of the local government for its stance on aid to Ukraine. The German publication BILD, citing sources in the Ukrainian government, reported that Melnyk would be appointed Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.
  • On September 23, President Volodymyr Zelenskyi signed a decree on the appointment of a new ambassador of Ukraine to Germany. He will be diplomat Oleksiy Makeev.
