Russia-Ukraine conflict: Zelenskyy blasts former German Chancellor
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy blasted former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder for saying that Russia wanted a “negotiated” solution to its war. Zelenskyy called Schroeder’s comments “disgusting.”
In his late-night video address, Zelenskyy blasted Schroeder, who is also known as a friend of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, for saying that Moscow wants a “negotiated solution” to the war that has continued for five months. At the time, Schroeder also said that there was a possibility for a ceasefire.
“It is simply disgusting when former leaders of major states with European values work for Russia, which is at war against these values,” said Zelenskyy.
Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak also dismissed Schroeder’s comments, calling the former German chancellor a “voice of the Russian royal court.”
Podolyak also said any negotiated peace agreement with Russia would be contingent on a ceasefire and the complete withdrawal of Russian forces from Ukraine.
