Putin told Scholz that Western support leads to Kiev's refusal to negotiate

“Attention was drawn to the destructive line of Western states, including Germany, pumping the Kiev regime with weapons, training the Ukrainian military. All this, as well as comprehensive political and financial support for Ukraine, leads Kiev to flatly reject the idea of any negotiations,” the statement said.

The Kremlin pointed out that this also “encourages radical Ukrainian nationalists to commit more and more bloody crimes against civilians”. “The Russian president urged the German side to reconsider its approaches in the context of Ukrainian events,” the statement stressed.
