The electric shock machine, lost at a meeting with Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel, was returned to President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky. This is the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
The publication states that the Ukrainian leader did not use the object for its intended purpose, but only kept it in a jacket for security, after which, probably, through a hole in the inner pocket, the shocker fell out and remained in Merkel’s residence.
“Vladimir Alexandrovich grew up in a disadvantaged area of a large industrial city, and his habit of wearing a stun gun has remained since his youthful years. The device is more soothing in nature than for direct use. It does not threaten the political leaders of other states. On the contrary, in the case of a potential assassination attempt, you can use a means of protection. We are pleased that Germany instantly returned to us the means of protecting our national leader. This indicates a strong relationship between the two European countries. The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine wishes a speedy recovery to Mrs. Federal Chancellor and reports her readiness, if necessary, to provide her with medical care in Kiev, in the Boris clinic, considered the best in our country, ”the statement of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.
