The representative member of the ruling coalition in Germany the Social democratic party Nils Schmid criticized Angela Merkel for meeting with Poroshenko
He expressed the opinion that meeting the Chancellor of the country with only one presidential candidate of Ukraine, current President, Petro Poroshenko, gives the impression of unilateral support.
The representative of the Social democratic party of Germany on foreign policy Nils Schmid criticized Chancellor Angela Merkel for her meeting with acting President of Ukraine and candidate for presidency Petro Poroshenko. About Schmid said in comments to magazine Der Spiegel.
“This is a political mistake, and it is surprising that Mrs Merkel met with Poroshenko for a week and a half before the election. So the impression of unilateral support”, – said the politician.
He expressed the opinion that it would be better if the Chancellor of Germany and President of France Emmanuel macron, would have met with the other presidential candidate Ukrainian showman Vladimir Zelensky.
“Zelensky although not so well known to us in Germany and we still worked well with Poroshenko, Zelensky also demonstrates a clear commitment to Pro-European course of Ukraine, focusing on the fight against corruption and unite the country,” added Schmid.
Schmid in his Twitter published a joint photo with the speaker of the headquarters Zelensky Vladimir Razumkov, with whom he met during his visit to Kyiv on 12 April.
Tacsuper Poroshenko on Friday, April 12, in Paris met with the President of France Emmanuel Macron.
The post joint photos with Macron Poroshenko issued at 19: 30 Kyiv time on his page in Facebook.
“A pleasure to meet a sincere friend of Ukraine Emmanuel Macron”, – he wrote.
Macron met Poroshenko on the porch of the Elysee Palace.
We will remind, the acting President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, left without allies and to try to put a few crafty plans on the presidential election, but then he will have much to explain.
If suddenly Petro Poroshenko somehow miraculously win in the second round, he will have to explain to the public what had happened a huge gap from Vladimir Zelensky.
