The foreign ministers of Germany, France, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia will visit Ukraine next week.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Oleg Nikolenko announced this at an online briefing on Tuesday, February 1, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

Nikolenko reminded that the Prime Ministers of Great Britain, Poland and the Netherlands are on official visits to Ukraine on February 1. The President of Turkey will arrive in Ukraine within the next several days.

“On February 7-8, the foreign ministers of Germany and France will pay a joint visit to Ukraine, including to Donbas. Next week, Dmytro Kuleba will also hold talks in Kyiv with the foreign ministers of Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia,” Nikolenko said.

He added that the Ukrainian government is constantly working with international partners to deter Russia from further Russian escalation.

“No one knows what is going on in the head of Russia’s leadership, but we know for sure that with such an intensive presence of foreign top officials in Ukraine, the risks of further aggression are decreasing,” the Foreign Ministry spokesperson said.
