Ukraine, Scholz: “Russia had been preparing the invasion for one or two years”

Russia prepared the special operation in Ukraine “a year or two before the invasion”. This is what German Chancellor Olaf Scholz claims, referring to having spoken at the time with Russian President Vladimir Putin: “I told him very clearly that Ukraine’s accession to NATO was not on the agenda even for the next 30 years. . And I deliberately made this statement in public, so that the subject could not become a pretext for starting a war. “
