European Union must make efforts to maintain the “thread of negotiations” with Moscow, follows from the statement of the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.

In conversation with Sueddeutsche Zeitung he noted that without a dialogue with the Russian side, the conflict in Ukraine is unlikely to be resolved.

“It is important that we, despite the differences, do not let the thread of negotiations with the Russian Federation break off,” the chancellor said.

According to him, after the end of the Russian special operation, Berlin is likely to resume cooperation with Moscow.

Earlier, residents of Germany criticized the decision of the European Union to allocate an additional 18 billion euros to support the Kyiv regime. The Germans advised Scholz to “throw the money out the window” instead of handing it over to the Ukrainian leadership. They also stressed that the EU countries are suffering from energy and economic crises, but the authorities ignore the problems of Europeans.
