P.S. : Bärbel Bas, the president of the German Parliament lower house - and the nominal #3 after Steinmeier and Scholz by diplomatic ranking - visited Kyev today (i.e. on the 8th - not on the 9th). She met with her Ukrainian counterpart by whom she had been invited as well as head of government Denys Schmyhal - and also had "a talk" with Zelinskyy. Bas' visit had been planned since mid-April and is not a reaction to the more recent Scholz/Steinmeier invitation.Scholz has so far not acknowledged the invitation, and it is highly doubtable (as in: will not happen, see below) that he or Steinmeier would visit Kyev tomorrow to support some odd one-off Ukrainian "counter-celebrations" to Russia-only celebrations.
