Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has called on German Chancellor Olaf Scholz to show more support for Kiev, accusing him of worrying too much about the consequences from Russia.

Scholz has been constantly criticized for not holding a tough stance against Russia, since the beginning of the occupation of Ukraine, reports Telegrafi.

In an interview with German broadcaster ZDF, the Ukrainian president said he needed more "sincerity" from Scholz - making it clear that Germany supported Ukraine.

"He and his government must decide: there can be no trade between Ukraine and relations with Russia," Zelensky added.

These comments come at a time when the German chancellor is reported to be making his first trip to Kiev since the start of the Russian occupation of Ukraine.
