Vladimir Putin – Race against Macron and Scholz

– Putin told them about the real situation. In particular, he pointed to repeated violations by Ukrainian security forces of the norms of international humanitarian law, stated in an official statement from the Kremlin.

He claimed that Ukraine executed dissidents and used civilians as human shields and deployed heavy weapons in hospitals, schools and kindergartens. In addition, Putin reiterated the Kremlin’s claim that Ukrainian forces were deliberately interfering with the evacuation of civilians.

Requesting the mayor’s release

Before Scholz and Macron spoke with Putin, they held a telephone meeting with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who asked both of them to demand that Putin’s troops release the mayor of Melitopol. According to Ukrainian authorities, the mayor was kidnapped by Russian soldiers on Friday.

– In the evening and today we have spoken with our partners about the situation regarding our mayor. Our demands are clear: he must be released immediately, Zelensky said in a video released by Ukrainian authorities.
