During his visit to Prague, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, met with the Head of the Foreign Ministry of Germany, Annalena Berbok. The parties discussed the eighth package of EU sanctions against Russia and what it should include.
"I met my colleague Annalena Burbok in Prague. We discussed the eighth package of EU sanctions, visa restrictions for Russians, further supply of weapons to Ukraine.

According to him, the foreign ministers of the countries in Prague will come to a final decision in the coming days.
