Scholz did not take offense at the ambassador of Ukraine who called him “insulted liver sausage”
Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz did not take offense at the ambassador of Ukraine in Germany who called him “insulted liver sausage” Andrey Melnyk. He stated this in interview German portal t-online.
When asked how Scholz felt about this insult, the chancellor replied that he would leave it to the journalist’s own judgment. When asked to clarify his words, the politician noted that “Ukraine has been in a state of war for several weeks.”
“There is no need to attach so much importance to every word. It is important to focus on the main thing – we want to help Ukraine defend itself. And together with our allies, we want Russia to cease fire and withdraw its troops from the territory of Ukraine. That is why we imposed sanctions,” Scholz explained his position.
May 3 Melnyk criticized German chancellor for refusing to visit Kyiv. The Ambassador of Ukraine called the head of the German Cabinet “an offended liver sausage” and said that the politician behaves like a child.
Representatives of German political parties got up to the defense of the German Chancellor. The deputy chairman of the Free Democratic Party (SDP), Wolfgang Kubiki, recalled that Scholz is not a sausage, but the head of the country’s cabinet, and “this must be respected.”
