Scholz confirms his solidarity with Ukraine in a telephone conversation with Zelensky

Chancellor Olaf Scholz reaffirmed German solidarity with Ukraine in a telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Scholz discussed with Zelensky ways to further strengthen Ukraine’s air defenses, government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said on Saturday. The Defense Ministry had previously announced that Germany would provide Ukraine with a new Patriot air defense system.

Scholz and Zelensky agreed that further efforts from partners were necessary, Hebestreit said. “The Chancellor promised that Germany would actively support the Swiss initiative for a high-level international peace conference and work towards the broadest possible global participation,” the press release said.

Switzerland is planning a high-level international peace conference on Ukraine in June, but Russia will not attend.

Scholz and Zelensky also discussed preparations for the Ukrainian Reconstruction Conference in Berlin in June and agreed to continue working together to achieve substantial results, Hebestreit said.
