Ukrainian Ambassador to Austria Oleksandr Shcherba informed this with reference to the article in Austria's news magazine Profil.
"In mid-March, President Alexander van der Bellen and Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl will go on a state visit to Ukraine. Trips to Kyiv and Lviv are planned," he wrote.
It is noted that during a visit to Vienna, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko presented Alexander van der Bellen with documents stating that his great-grandfather on the maternal side Maximilian Reimann was born on the territory of modern Poltava region.
"Until now, I knew only about the family roots in Russia and Estonia, now I am obviously also a bit of Ukrainian," the Austrian president said.
