German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has said he has now ruled out the possibility of peace in Ukraine on Russian terms, German broadcaster ARD reported on June 17.

Speaking after his return from a trip to the Ukrainian capital Kyiv, Scholz called Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's hopes of seizing part of Ukraine and changing its borders by force.

Russia must abandon its plan to "seize part of Ukraine through brutal violence" and its "imperialist concept of changing the borders of countries," Scholz said.

"It's an illusion, and I conveyed this to Putin,” Scholz went on.

“For example, sanctions against Russia will remain in place until the country reaches a fair agreement with Ukraine,” the German leader said. “These conditions of peace will be decided by the people, the parliament, and the president of Ukraine."

French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi on June 16 made their first visit to Ukraine since the start of the full-scale Russian invasion.
