Scholz promised to support Ukraine until victory in the war

According to him, Moscow uses a «scorched earth strategy».

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that he will support Ukraine in the fight against the aggressor Russia until the victory in the war.

Scholz said this at the Berlin Security Conference, Ukrinform reports.

«We will continue to support Ukraine as much as necessary: ​​economically, financially, humanitarianly through the restoration of the destroyed energy infrastructure – as well as with weapons,» the chancellor said.

Scholz expressed confidence that the Kremlin would not win the war. He emphasized that Ukraine currently protects the entire European security system. Instead, Moscow is using a «horrific and at the same time desperate scorched earth strategy» attacking Ukraine’s vital infrastructure.

The Chancellor of Germany noted that the West takes the Russian regime’s irresponsible nuclear rhetoric seriously.

«But we will not allow ourselves to be intimidated. To this end, the federal government has decided to buy F-35 fighter jets as part of the German nuclear program,» Scholz said.
