Scholz: Germany must prepare for the escalation of the war in Ukraine

The German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, has warned that his country must be prepared for the escalation of the war in Ukraine.

“Given the progress of the war and the obvious and growing failures of Russia, we must be ready for the escalation of the situation. That could include destroying infrastructure, he said.

Scholz visited China earlier this month to meet with its president, Xi Jinping, a trip he said was worth it just to express the two countries’ common stance against the use of nuclear weapons.

In the first visit by a G7 leader to China since the Covid pandemic, Scholz pressed Xi to pressure Russia to end its occupation of Ukraine.
