Newsline: Germany FM reopens embassy in Kyiv

Germany’s foreign minister has reopened her country’s embassy in Kyiv that was closed more than two months ago following the Russian invasion. Annalena Baerbock said Tuesday that the diplomatic mission would work with a skeleton staff, headed by Ambassador Anka Feldhusen. Baerbock, the first German Cabinet member to visit Ukraine since the start of the war, pledged further support to Kyiv. Baerbock also stressed that Germany will reduce its dependence on Russian energy supplies “to zero, forever.” (https://www.wsbtv.com/news/world/live-updates-germany/VJX3HDBKG2TBCJRPYE24MX6AIM/) The German government has said it will end imports of Russian oil and coal this year and of natural gas from Russia by 2024 at the latest.
