Zelenskyy was greeted with military honours, and the orchestra performed the Ukrainian anthem.

The tête-à-tête between Zelenskyy and Scholz and another round of talks in a wider circle will be followed by a press conference between the two leaders.


Bild states that the talks are scheduled to include Zelenskyy together with Olaf Scholz, Defence Minister Boris Pistorius, Interior Minister Nancy Faeser and Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

Zelenskyy, under the protection of fighter jets, arrived in Berlin on the night of 14 May for the first time since the start of Russia's full-scale war of aggression.

On 13 May, Germany's Ministry of Defence officially announced €2.7 billion worth of military aid to Ukraine, the largest package since Russia's invasion in February 2022.
