“It is necessary” – Kremlin: Putin wants to see the German Chancellor


German Chancellor Olaf Scholz wants to reconnect with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Although his last conversation was some time ago, he recently explained that he wanted to speak to the Kremlin boss again when the time came. The Russian elite seems visibly impressed. “It is necessary to talk,” said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Since the beginning of the ruthless Russian offensive war, the West has repeatedly tried to find a basis for talks with Moscow. Lately, however, there has been no trace of that. German Chancellor Scholz now wants to try again.

Don’t rule out Putin’s robbery
As he explained to the “Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger”, the withdrawal of Russian troops was a precondition for a “fair peace”. However, Russia must understand that it cannot be a kind of “cold peace” – “in which, for example, the current frontline becomes the new ‘border’ between Russia and Ukraine. That would only legitimize Putin’s raid,” Scholz said with conviction.

What about Crimea?
It is uncertain whether this also applies to the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which has been annexed by Russia since 2014. He avoided a related question by repeating the words: “withdrawal of troops”, adding: “It is not for us to formulate for Ukraine what agreements it wants to make.”

Due to the vague wording “withdrawal of troops” instead of “withdrawal of troops”, it is not clear whether all troops are meant. He also did not want to answer the question of whether Putin should be overthrown. “I don’t believe in such speculative questions. Ultimately, an agreement will have to be reached between the governments in Moscow and Kiev,” he said.

Russia protects its interests
Peskow described on Friday that Scholz had done that before
did not call or Berlin initiated such an initiative for a conversation. “President Putin remains open to dialogue, but of course he pursues the fundamental goal of protecting the interests of our citizens.” According to the Kremlin, Putin and Scholz last spoke on the phone for about an hour on Dec. 2 about a German initiative. about the situation in Ukraine and the consequences of the war.
