Talking about the meeting, both Russian President Vladimir Putin and visiting German Chancellor Olaf Scholz underlined the need to avoid a war over Ukraine and to settle the crisis via diplomatic efforts. "Regarding whether we want this (war), of course we don't. This is why we have put forward proposals for the start of a negotiation process in a bid to reach an agreement ensuring equal security for everyone," Putin said during a press conference with Scholz following their talks in the Kremlin.

Scholz said despite the positions of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and the European Union may differ from those of Russia, dialogue remains crucial, Xinhua news agency reported.

Europe is faced with one of its most dangerous crises in decades and there is an urgent need to defuse the tensions regarding Ukraine and prevent a possible war, the German leader stressed. As a war in Europe is "unimaginable," Scholz considered it the duty of both Putin and himself to prevent any military escalation on the continent.
