“Now we are having such a direct dialogue regarding the needs that the German side has stated. And over the past years, tens of thousands of Ukrainians ... First of all, they were students. They came to Germany during the harvest. Not only strawberries, but especially asparagus and other agricultural products in Germany. We have a number of official requests from the German authorities," the ambassador said.
He added that now it is about several thousand people for whom requests have been made.
"I am convinced that it is thanks to this systematic view that we will be able to find solutions that will be in the interests of both the Ukrainian workers and the Ukrainian state, and our German partners," the diplomat said.
As we reported before, Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba denies reports that his Ministry allegedly banned Ukrainians from traveling abroad for seasonal work.
