Scholz To Putin: Russia Has 'Responsibility' For Global Food Situation

GERMANY

Hans von der Burchard at Politico on latest call (first in five weeks) between German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Russian President Vladimir Putin:

  • "In 75-minute phone call this morning, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told Vladimir Putin that he "clearly rejects the accusation that Nazism is widespread in Ukraine." Scholz called for a ceasefire ASAP "and progress in the search for a diplomatic solution to the conflict."
  • "Given the seriousness of the military situation & consequences of the war in Ukraine, particularly in Mariupol, [Scholz urged Putin] to reach as soon as possible a ceasefire, an improvement of the humanitarian situation and progress in the search for a diplomatic solution."
  • "In doing so, the Chancellor clearly rejected the accusation that Nazism is widespread in Ukraine. [They] also discussed the global food situation, which is particularly tense as a result of Russia's war ... [Scholz] recalled that Russia has a special responsibility here."
Statement from Chancellery following the call much more forceful in its rhetoric than previous readouts. German gov't has previously expressed its anger at Russia's use of rhetoric from WW2 in justifying its invasion of Ukraine.
