German Chancellor Olaf Scholz expressed confidence that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin would not win Russia’s war against Ukraine, in his address on the anniversary of the end of World War II on May 8, known as Victory in Europe Day.
The Chancellor expressed confidence that freedom and security would overcome slavery, violence, and dictatorship, just like it did 77 years ago.“One thing is clear,” Scholz stated.
"There will be no peace dictated by Russia. Ukrainians will not accept this, and neither will we.”
President Volodymyr Zelensky invited Scholz to visit Ukraine on May 9, along with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
