Sholts told what language Putin speaks with him

German Chancellor Olaf Sholts told the German media that in negotiations with him, Russian President Vladimir Putin sometimes moves from Russian to German.

“He alternates German and Russian. My knowledge of the Russian is limited by the eight -hour course of schooling at school,” said Sholts, answering a question about his meeting with Putin, which took place in February during the visit of the head of the German government in Moscow.

At the same time, the German Chancellor emphasized that his September telephone conversation with the President of Russia was the last. “Since then we have not talked to each other,” he stated.

During the negotiations, according to Scholts, he repeatedly urged Putin to stop military operations in Ukraine, withdraw his troops and thus prepare the ground for peace negotiations.
