BERLIN, May 4. (DPA/PE) –
The German chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has indicated this Wednesday that he will continue speaking with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, but has warned not to have illusions about it.
“The situation is as it is,” lamented Scholz, who recalled that despite the various conversations he and other international leaders, such as French President Emmanuel Macron, had with Putin a day earlier, the situation had not advanced. “We should have no illusions about it,” he has said.
Likewise, Scholz has remarked that “peace will only be possible” if Russia agrees to close an agreement that Ukraine supports because so far President Putin continues to pursue “an unacceptable and misleading objective.”
“A dictatorial peace will not work. Russia should immediately silence the weapons,” defended the German chancellor at a press conference on the occasion of the visit to Berlin of the presidents of Serbia and Kosovo, Aleksandar Vucic and Albin Kurti, respectively.
