Scholz: There must be no dictated peace between Russia and Ukraine
Chancellor Olaf Scholz sees no possibility of peace between Russia and Ukraine without a withdrawal of Russian troops. “It cannot come down to a dictated peace by Russia towards Ukraine,” said Scholz on Monday at an event organized by the “Rheinische Post” in Düsseldorf.
“We have to be prepared for the possibility that it may take longer,” said the Federal Chancellor when asked about the duration of the war: “It could be out of balance for a long time.” Russian President Vladimir Putin should not win the war, confirmed Scholz. Boundaries should not be pushed by force.
