Russia and President Vladimir Putin understand only the language of power. That is why it is necessary to deliver a painful ultimatum to the head of the aggressor state. Otherwise, it will not be possible to stop the “energy genocide” of Ukrainians.

Andriy Melnyk, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and former Ambassador to Germany, addressed such statements to German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. The official wrote on his personal Twitter page: “Mr. Chancellor. Glad you made a call to Putin: ‘End this war.’ But these are just words. Russia only understands force. Give Putin an ultimatum. With painful consequences. Stop the energy genocide of Ukrainians.” . Do it, please.”

Scholz has yet to comment on Melnik’s request. Recall that yesterday the German Chancellor publicly urged Putin to end the war in Ukraine. He said: “Stop this war, withdraw your troops and clear the way for peace talks that Russia cannot dictate to Ukraine. The head of the German government also added that “no one is allowed to appropriate someone else’s territory.”
