Germany will act so that this war does not escalate from a Ukrainian-Russian war into a “completely different war,” he said.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that Berlin will not supply Ukraine with weapons from which the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be able to strike at the territory of the Russian Federation.
He said this during the “Dialogue with Citizens” in Magdeburg, quotes Ukrinform quotes .
The head of the German government noted that the goal of Germany is to prevent Putin from winning the war, “so that the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine is preserved.”Play Video
Further, Scholz recalled the words of American President Joe Biden.
“The President of the United States formulated this quite clearly: he said that he would not supply weapons with which to shell the territory of Russia. I consider this a principle that we all agree on. And therefore we look at what others are doing,” Scholz replied.
He added that Germany would act in such a way that this war would not escalate from a Ukrainian-Russian war into a “completely different war.”
