Scholz: Germany will never support a ceasefire that leads to Ukraine’s surrender

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said that Berlin will not support a ceasefire that would lead to Ukraine’s surrender, according to ntv

The Bundestag included Ukraine in its questions to the government. Left Party MP Gesine Lotsch asked the chancellor about the possibility of a ceasefire, prompting him to criticize Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s “peace proposal.”

Germany should never support a ceasefire that leads to Ukraine’s surrender, Olaf Scholz stated.

Scholz called Putin’s proposal strange. The Kremlin master said he would be ready for a ceasefire “if Ukraine also agrees to further annexations.”

This demonstrates, according to the chancellor, “how cynical they are thinking there, and that the Russian leader has no intention of ending his war of aggression.” Putin talks about peace talks, only to continue the war. “We will not allow this,” Scholz assured.

Lotsch also asked whether Chancellor Olaf Scholz gives a “guarantee” that Germany will not become a party to the war. He answered in the affirmative: “Yes, I give such a guarantee. This is what I stand for as chancellor.”

On June 14, Putin made a speech about new “conditions for the start of peace talks”: Ukrainian troops must withdraw from all four Ukrainian regions, and Kyiv must declare that it has no plans to join NATO.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry said that with his so-called ultimatum to start “peace talks,” Putin aims to disrupt the Global Peace Summit in Switzerland.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky compared Putin’s proposal to the actions of the German Nazi regime in an interview with the Italian TV channel Sky TG24.
