Merkel's office said on Monday that the former German leader received a call on Jan.12 from someone claiming to be Poroshenko. The conversation was assisted by a German-Ukrainian interpreter from the German Foreign Ministry's language service.
In an emailed statement, the office said Merkel informed the ministry afterward about the "impression that she gained of the caller during the call,” but didn't elaborate on what that was.
Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexei Stolyarov, known as Vovan and Lexus, posted on their Telegram channel what they said were excerpts from the call.
The pair have previously embarrassed European politicians including French President Emmanuel Macron, Polish President Andrzej Duda and then-British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, as well as Elton John and Prince Harry, with similar hoax calls.
The recording features Merkel saying — as she has done publicly before —that the much-criticised Minsk peace agreement had bought precious time for Ukraine.
Merkel and former French President Francois Hollande had brokered the peace agreement with Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2015. She also criticises repression in autocratic Belarus.
Poroshenko was Ukraine's president from 2014 until 2019. Merkel led Germany from 2005 until the end of 2021.
