VVladimir Putin does not consider the war in Ukraine a “mistake,” German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said during a press conference on Wednesday, where he was asked about his meeting with the Russian president the day before.
“Unfortunately, I cannot say that there is now a growing realization that it was a mistake to start this war,” Scholz said in Berlin.
According to him, Putin’s opinion is not going to change: “There is nothing to suggest that a new situation is emerging”, confirmed the German chancellor in a 90-minute telephone conversation with the Russian president on Tuesday.
A single “perspective”
Olaf Scholes felt it was “fair” to talk to each other and say what we have to say. “Because I firmly believe that Russia has to leave, its troops have to leave, so that there is a chance for peace in this region,” he said.
“Every day it becomes more and more clear that this is the only chance,” he continued. And add: “We need to talk about it”.
On Tuesday, Olaf Scholz urged Vladimir Putin to order a “complete withdrawal” from Ukraine.
