German Chancellor Olaf Sholts advises with the former German chancellor Angela Merkel on the issue of politics against Russia. He stated this in an interview with Focus magazine.
The German leader also emphasized that he “does not have a problem of communication with the Russian ruler (Vladimir Putin – Ed.)”, Therefore, it makes no sense to attract Merkel as an intermediary in relations with Moscow.
Olaf Sholts added that the Russian president “pursues goals” that the West cannot accept.
