Scholz did not rule out the possibility of resuming contacts with Putin – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

Scholz recalled that he negotiated with Putin both before the start of the special operation in Ukraine and after it, and also “he always said that he would continue to do this.”

“But this needs the right moment: there has to be a topic of discussion for it to make sense,” Scholz said.

Now the chancellor is waiting for “something specific to discuss,” but so far he sees no such reason. “This is why I haven’t done it in a long time, but I don’t want it to seem impossible,” Scholz explained.

A little earlier, after Vladimir Putin announced a new peace proposal to resolve the conflict in Ukraine, Scholz made it clear that he was skeptical about its provisions. Therefore, the German leader did not consider the negotiations on Ukraine a sufficient reason to resume contacts.

The President of the Russian Federation and the Chancellor of Germany have spoken by phone 11 times since the beginning of World War II, including three times in a trilateral format with the participation of French President Emmanuel Macron, TASS notes. Most of these contacts took place in spring 2022.

The last time Putin and Scholz spoke by phone was on December 2, 2022. Their last face-to-face meeting took place in the Kremlin on February 15 of the same year.
