German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said Germans should never forget the Kremlin aggression against Ukraine and about the suffering of Ukrainian people during his visit to Kyiv on Oct. 25.
"Despite all the hardships that the war also brings for us in Germany — let's look through the eyes of the Ukrainians for a moment,” Steinmeier said while visiting In Kyiv on Oct. 25
“Then we know that they need our full solidarity and support — as long as it is necessary. It's also a matter of the immediate objective to repair destroyed infrastructure, such as power grid, water supply and heating as quickly as possible."
Addressing Ukrainians, Steinmeier said they "will continue to support Ukraine economically, politically and also militarily."
"My message to the Ukrainians is that we are not only standing by your side," he stressed.
It is Steinmeier’s first visit to Ukraine since Russian full-scale invasion began on Feb. 24.
He was expected to come on Oct. 20, but the visit was postponed due to security reasons.
