German Chancellor Angela Merkel will arrive in Ukraine in autumn. President Petro Poroshenko said that during his meeting with leaders of Ukraine's diplomatic institutions. 

'In early November, Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel will visit Ukraine. This is a very bright evidence of special attention of our German partners and Berlin to development of mutually beneficial partnership with Kyiv', Poroshenko said.

Previously, Merkel stated Ukraine and Georgia have 'the clearest European perspective'. 'As for Germany's policy towards Eastern Europe, it's not a new initiative. Heiko Maas only stressed that good relations with Russia are very important, since it is a neighbor of the European Union, but on the other hand, we need a clear policy, how everything should be formed with regard to Eastern Europe, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, but Georgia and  Ukraine are exactly the countries, which have the greatest European perspective, "she said.
