Chancellor Olaf Scholz also said on August 22 that he had assured Putin before the start of the war that Ukraine would not join NATO in the long term.
Ukrainian-born envoy, Dmitry Kozak, had told Putin that the agreement he had negotiated would make a large-scale occupation of Ukraine by Russia unnecessary.
Mykhailo Podoliak, an adviser to the Ukrainian president, said Russia used the negotiations as an excuse to prepare an invasion.
After the war had started ... before this date the UK, NATO and Joe Biden refused any diplomatic talks for a solution.
F*cked Scholz ... the assurances given by GHB and Clinton were worthless .... WhoIs Olaf?
Minister, can you understand Ukraine's desire for German Leopard 2 tanks?
And do you also share the assumption of your Ukrainian colleague Dmytro Kuleba that Germany and other Western countries are hiding behind a psychological barrier?
A country at war, which has to experience every day in the most brutal way that friends, parents, siblings die, rightly wants all the help and military support it can give. No matter what. We, in turn, who are fortunate enough to continue to live in peace and security - also because Ukraine is defending our European peace order - have a double responsibility: not only to promise this help, but also to deliver it. And at the same time the responsibility that the war does not spread to other countries. That is why, at the very beginning of this war, we spoke out against a no-fly zone, even though my heart bled, because that would have meant that we ourselves would have become a war party against Russia.
Instead, we made a radical change in German policy and have since been supplying weapons, including heavy weapons, so that Ukraine can defend itself. And the last few days and weeks have shown how important these international deliveries are. State-of-the-art western weapon systems make a massive difference. Our Cheetah tanks, self-propelled howitzers and multiple rocket launchers help to finally liberate occupied places in the east and to eliminate Russian air forces and important Russian positions in a targeted manner.
