“The priority right now is – Russia must immediately stop the war and withdraw its troops. True, then the question arises – how can we achieve European security. Of course, we are ready to talk with Russia about arms control in Europe. We already offered it before the war, and there is nothing in this position has not changed,” the chancellor said when asked if he supported French President Emmanuel Macron’s idea of ”security guarantees for Russia”.
Commenting on his phone conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Scholz said it was important to keep in touch so that “Putin always hears our point of view.”
According to his own words, during the last conversation, it was important for Scholtz to express his position on two issues – he condemned the bombing of Ukrainian cities, energy and water supplies, and also asked Putin “when Russia will finally be ready to withdraw troops from Ukraine”.
“One thing is clear – there must be no peace dictated on the terms of Russia,” emphasized the German chancellor, adding that the parties look at the war and its reasons “from completely different points of view.”
