In his speech, Olaf Scholz also called for a reform of the UN Security Council, which has been blocked for a long time.
"Russia's war of aggression has caused enormous suffering not only in Ukraine. People all over the world are suffering as a result of inflation, rising debts, shortages of fertilizers, hunger and increasing poverty. Precisely because this war has intolerable consequences all over the world, it is right and proper for the world to become involved in the search for peace. But peace without freedom is called oppression. Peace without justice is called dictatorship. And Moscow must finally understand this. Because let's not forget that Russia is responsible for this war and that it is the Russian president who can end it at any time with a single order," Scholz said.
