Negotiations between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Russian President Vladimir Putin have ended. The German politician supported the extension of the transit contract with Ukraine after 2024.

This became known during a press conference  following the talks.

According to Merkel, they discussed Nord Stream 2 and agreements with the United States on the Russian gas pipeline. At the same time, the Chancellor supported the extension of the agreement with Ukraine on the transit of Russian gas after 2024.

In addition, she reiterated that Germany supports the territorial integrity of Ukraine, and the “Norman format” needs to be rehabilitated, because there is now stagnation.

In turn, Putin asked his German counterpart during a visit to Ukraine to influence Kyiv to fulfill its commitments on Donbass. At the same time, he once again stated that the Kyiv authorities had refused to resolve the conflict in Donbas peacefully.

As UNIAN previously reported, on Friday, August 20, German Chancellor Angela Merkel Merkel arrived in Moscow for talks with Russian President  Vladimir Putin.

According to the press service of the Russian president, the meeting took place in the Grand Kremlin Palace.

  • What the fat hag and the sewer rat discussed is actually completely superfluous. Mafia land will do as it sees fit and most likely this means reducing or even stopping the flow of gas through Ukraine. At least, it will use whatever remains of the flowthrough as political leverage.

  • This is probably a good time to remind the Moskali of the FIRST TWO points in the Minsk agreement. They have to happen BEFORE the other points can even start. Merkel, Bidenov, etc. here are your talking points…….

    1. To ensure an immediate bilateral ceasefire.
    2. To ensure the monitoring and verification of the ceasefire by the OSCE .
