Scholz states that the war in Ukraine will not end with the victory of Putin's imperialism
Russia's war against Ukraine in the peaceful European order will not end with Putin's victory. Europe must support Ukraine on its democratic path to achieve peace as soon as possible.
This was stated by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. He expressed this belief in his speech at the Council of Europe Summit in Reykjavik.
"One day, the Russian war will end. However, it will obviously not end with the victory of Putin's imperialism. We will continue to support Ukraine until a just peace is achieved," Scholz said.
He also said that the allies should make every effort to support Ukraine.
"One of the main lessons that Europe must learn from Russia's aggression against the European peace order is the need to make every effort to support Ukraine on its democratic European path: in defending itself against Russian aggression and strengthening its legal institutions in the process of recovery," the Chancellor said.
He stressed that the Council of Europe plays an important role in bringing the occupiers and Russian war criminals to justice, as well as in establishing a mechanism for compensation for the damage caused by the Russian Federation and their registration. These issues are among the key tasks at the current summit.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy delivered a speech at the opening session of the fourth Council of Europe summit, which began in Reykjavik, Iceland, on Tuesday, May 16. He stressed that Ukrainians are Europeans, so we are free.
