German Chancellor Angela Merkel expects to meet with Ukrainian President-elect Volodymyr Zelensky in the near future, but a date for such a meeting has not been announced yet.

“I cannot say anything about a specific date. However, as we know, the chancellor always has a great interest in the development of the situation in Ukraine and, of course, will have in mind the possibility of an early meeting,” she said.

As reported, Merkel congratulated Zelensky on winning Ukraine's presidential election and promised further support for reforms in Ukraine.

The inauguration of Volodymyr Zelensky will take place at the Verkhovna Rada on May 20.
