There’s no chance for peace in Ukraine in near future, as the war can drag on for a long time with a large number of casualties, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Feb. 23, as reported by German public broadcaster ZDF.

He stressed that partners should continue to provide military assistance to Ukraine.

“You can't give up trying to change the situation,” said Scholz.

“It is necessary to continue to support Ukraine with weapons. The moment that will open the prospect of peace hasn’t yet arrived.”

At the same time, Scholz again defended Germany's often sluggish approach to supplying weapons to Ukraine.

“We intend to always act in harmony with our allies,” the chancellor said.

He stressed that he opposes all those who propose to rush.

“The citizens of our country can be sure that I won’t be made a fool of,” Scholz concluded.

On Feb. 22, German federal government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said that despite the absence of any results, Chancellor Olaf Scholz would continue making phone calls to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
