The wife of former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has lost her role with a state-owned company after appearing with her husband at a party at the Russian Embassy in Berlin, according to German press reports. Schroeder’s wife, So-yeon Schroeder-Kim, is being dismissed and “terminated without notice” by NRW.Global Business, which promotes foreign trade in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, according to reports in Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger and Spiegel.

Schroeder-Kim had previously confirmed her attendance at the event at the embassy, which commemorated the country’s role in defeating Nazi Germany. Schroeder himself was stripped of many of his perks after refusing to distance himself from Russia. He’s left roles at the Russian energy giants Rosneft and Gazprom.
