German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, the Kremlin press service reported.
The conversation between the President of the Russian Federation and the Chancellor of Germany became the seventh since the beginning of the Russian operation in Ukraine
As the Russian side said, the leaders of the two countries discussed the situation in Ukraine, including the talks between Moscow and Kyiv, which are "essentially blocked" by the latter. According to Berlin, the chancellor not only called for a diplomatic solution to the conflict but also touched on the topic of global food security.
TASS collected the main information about Scholz's first conversation with Putin in a month and a half.
What they said in Moscow
Putin and Scholz, according to the Kremlin press service, discussed the situation in Ukraine "with an emphasis on humanitarian aspects." In particular, they talked about the evacuation of civilians from the territory of the Azovstal plant, the last district of Mariupol, which the Ukrainian side continues to hold.
In addition, Putin drew attention to "the continued gross violations of international humanitarian law by militants professing Nazi ideology" and "their use of inhuman terrorist methods," the Kremlin said.
The Russian leader, according to the press service, also gave "a fundamental assessment of the state of affairs in the Russian-Ukrainian negotiations, which, in fact, are blocked by Kyiv." Earlier on Friday, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said there was no progress in preparing an agreement between the two countries - according to him, Ukraine has not yet responded to Russia's proposals.
Putin and Scholz agreed to continue the discussion on the Ukrainian topic "in the course of contacts through various channels," the Kremlin added.
What was said in Berlin?
Scholz, in a conversation with Putin, again called for an early ceasefire and a diplomatic solution to the situation in Ukraine, German government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit told reporters.
According to him, the leaders also discussed the "global food situation", which "especially worsened" in connection with the fighting on Ukrainian territory. "The chancellor reminded us that Russia has a special responsibility in this matter," added a spokesman for the German Cabinet.
In addition, Scholz, according to Berlin, "clearly rejected the accusation that Nazism is widespread in Ukraine."
Circumstances of the conversation
The conversation between Putin and Scholz was the seventh since the beginning of the Russian operation in Ukraine and the first in a month and a half - the last time they called each other was on March 30. One of the main topics of the previous conversation was Moscow's decision on a new procedure for paying for Russian gas - Putin announced the decision to supply it to unfriendly countries, including Germany, only in Russian rubles on March 23.
Neither Berlin nor Moscow listed gas supplies among the issues discussed on Friday. At the same time, since May 11, Ukraine has stopped gas transit to Europe through the Sokhranivka station, since it allegedly cannot control the Novopskov border compressor station, and Russia on the same day imposed sanctions against 31 organizations, the list of which included former European subsidiaries of Gazprom (including Gazprom Germania), traders, underground gas storage operators, and Europol GAZ, a joint venture between a Russian company and Polish PGNiG, which owns the Polish section of the Yamal-Europe gas pipeline.
According to the German side, the conversation lasted 75 minutes and was held "in continuation of the telephone conversation between the Chancellor and Ukrainian President [Vladimir] Zelensky on May 11." Then the talks between Kyiv and Moscow and "concrete practical possibilities" of further support for Ukraine were discussed.
The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
