During a meeting in Washington, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and US President Joe Biden are planning to discuss Donbas issues. This was announced by the German Ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen in an interview with Dzerkalo Tyzhnya.
"Donbas, of course, is one of the most difficult problems, no doubt they will talk about it. The Chancellor knew on this problem from the first days, and, as I was told, she reads news about Ukraine every day," Feldhuzen said.
According to the diplomat, the question of Donbas is personal for Angela Merkel.
Earlier the Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel and the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky held a telephone conversation on the occasion of the anniversary of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War. During the conversation, Merkel invited Zelensky to Berlin to discuss bilateral relations and a peaceful settlement in Donbas.
German Ambassador to Ukraine Anka Feldhusen is confident that providing Ukraine with a NATO Membership Action Plan would not prevent Russia from occupying Crimea. The head of the German diplomatic mission said this in an interview with ZN.UA, commenting on the claims of the National Defence Council Secretary Danilov against Germany and France regarding the refusal to support the granting of MAP to Ukraine at the Bucharest NATO summit in 2008.
According to Feldhusen, Germany does not consider itself guilty of what happened in Ukraine in 2014.
“I told this directly to Mr. Danilov and I answer you: no. I was here in 2014, and I think that the plans for the annexation of Crimea were in the boxes of the Russian authorities for a long time and they, having seen the opportunity to act, - after all, Ukraine was in such a weak state after The Revolution of Dignity - reacted very quickly, "Feldhusen said.
