Russian President Vladimir Putin and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz spoke by phone, during which the Russian leader expressed the Kiev regime’s desire to prolong peace talks.
The Kremlin said: “It was noted that the Kiev regime is trying in every possible way to delay the negotiation process, putting forward more and more unrealistic proposals. Nevertheless, the Russian side is ready to continue the search for solutions in line with its well-known principled approaches.”
