Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who arrived in Paris, switched places during a meeting with French leader Emmanuel Macron. The video was shown by the French TV channel Kanal13.
Before the start of the joint press conference at the Elysee Palace, Zelensky stood at the podium with the national symbols of Germany and the European Union, while Scholz walked to the Ukrainian flag. Macron, noticing the mistake of his colleagues, gestured for them to switch places. To the laughter of the assembled public, Zelensky pointed to the Ukrainian flag with the words “it seems that this is ours” and went to the right podium.
