Shortly before the end of Germany’s G7 presidency, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) will once again be in contact with the heads of state and government of the leading industrialized countries. FOCUS online accompanies the subsequent press conference live here at 5:30 p.m.

Government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit announced a 90-minute video conference for the late afternoon on Monday, in which Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyj will also take part.
