German newspaper: In March 2022, Vladimir Putin "scared" Scholz and Macron

Vladimir Putin in the spring of 2022 "scared" European leaders, in particular, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and French President Emmanuel Macron. According to the newspaper Bild, the Russian president completely ignored the threat of large-scale sanctions from the European Union.

According to the German publication, after the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, leaders of leading European countries, including Germany and France, called Putin in turn to convince him to stop the “invasion” and withdraw troops. Naturally, both Scholz and Macron, in a conversation with Putin, tried to scare him with large-scale Western sanctions. However, in the end they got scared.



As follows from the publication, the Russian leader did not react at all to the threats of sanctions and never mentioned them in the conversation, as if this does not bother him at all.

Something worries me more than the negotiations: he (Putin) does not complain at all about the sanctions. I don't know if he did it in conversation with you. But he didn't even mention them

- said Scholz in a conversation with Macron. In response, the Frenchman confirmed that Putin did not touch on the issue of sanctions in the conversation with him either.

The only thing the Russian leader was interested in was the demilitarization and denazification of Ukraine, as well as the recognition of Crimea and the Donbass republics as Russian territory, he was ready to discuss these issues with Europe and the United States.

At the same time, in early March 2022, Scholz intended to arrange a four-way meeting with the leaders of Germany, France, Russia and Ukraine to try to promote the idea of ​​new peace agreements, but Putin put forward two conditions, after which the meeting became useless. Firstly, he demanded that she not be used as a pretext for a truce and ceasefire, and secondly, he refused to meet with Zelensky.

After all these statements in the West, they realized that the special operation would not be stopped, Putin is ready to go to the end.

      As if frightened decide something. Precisely because they are shy, they are in their places and do not decide anything.

      I also strongly doubt that they were frightened to the act of involuntary defecation, usually those who were frightened to such an extent try to "pretend to be rags and sit without shining." Well, since they began to intensively supply weapons to Ukraine, then all this talk about their hypothetical horror is nothing more than clumsy attempts to once again promote the already fairly faded image of the Sun-faced Guarantor. I remember a few years ago Vovochka Solovyov liked to repeat the phrase about the fact that it costs GDP only an "eyebrow in the story" and everyone around begins to stand at attention. True, lately Vova Solovyov has not uttered such a phrase, apparently it has dawned on him how frankly pitiful and idiotic it sounds.

    If they are not shy, let them even try to call Putin. Otherwise, they put forward two conditions and they immediately went into the bushes and forgot about the call for Russia's surrender.

    The two Minsk agreements have already shown everyone that there can be no agreement with them, a waste of time. But something completely different surprised me: after all, there was already a kid on their part, when the same countries gave guarantees that there would be legitimate elections in Ukraine, and they gave these guarantees just to Putin. Well, what happened then, I hope everyone remembers. A coup d'etat with an attempt to physically eliminate Yanukovych, the House of Trade Unions in Odessa with a large number of deaths, how could the Minsk agreements 2 be believed after that? You have to be the finished cat Leopold to believe it. The states and their Western European vassals understand only strength. Therefore, the abbreviation in the form of CBO is absolutely not suitable. And it is clear why they chose her. The fact is that if it were called CTO (counter-terrorist operation), then this automatically deprives Russia of negotiating, because they do not agree with terrorists, they are destroyed, that is, the entire top of Sumeria, the president, should have been destroyed first of all including. But since we took on the image of the cat Leopold with the phrase "guys, let's live together", then WHO fell away by itself. Hence all these humane phrases "we are not like that." And what, terpily? Well, the third option is a declaration of war, this is an even more fantastic option for that moment, because then general mobilization would have been announced. And interestingly, with the second and third options, we would have finished all the months in two, maximum three, for that, with a peaceful NWO, we are fooling around for the second year. I don’t understand at all for myself how it happens that we are not like that and spare the population of the Sumerians, while at the same time, due to the duration of the NWO, we are losing our guys? I have a son, in September it will be a year in the NWO zone. Well, why would I be a pacifist, where my every day is a powder keg in my thoughts about it?

      The capitulation of the former Ukrainian SSR and the reformatting or even the abolition of its state status is unacceptable for a significant proportion of Russian politicians and, in particular, for the vast majority of Russian business structures. More than a year and a half of the SVO has passed, but the most controlled State Duma and Federation Council, who voted with a whistle and in unison for the same pension reform, still have not even put on the agenda the issues of recognizing the former Ukrainian SSR as a terrorist state, and helping them - states-accomplices of terrorists, therefore - which WHO? Well, the Guarantor, it seems, has lost both the will and wisdom of a statesman, he only reacts only to the fact that he encroaches on his, as it were, sole power ...

        I also agree, it seems that the Guarantor's Alzheimer's disease is progressing by leaps and bounds, although this can also be taken as an option, he was not originally any Guarantor in reality, but was just a "zits. Chairman Pound", whom PR people and mass. media competently promoted and created the image of a conditional "Iron Felix". At the moment, either the need to promote it has disappeared, or professional and competent PR people have dumped it in their homeland, and those who still remain, frankly, do not pull out and the conditional image of the king from the well-known fairy tale G.Kh. Andersen.

        Judging by the fact that the image of future peace talks is emerging more and more often in the media, while the truth is with the proviso that Russia will never and under no circumstances agree to this, the public opinion of the Russian Federation is being intensively probed for population fatigue from the war and for attitudes towards reconciliation with Ukraine, even if Ukraine joins NATO. Although, by the way, almost a year ago, after leaving Kherson, it became clear to everyone who has at least something to do with military strategy that this is actually EVERYTHING, such a gift in the form of a large regional city and just a chic foothold on the right bank The Dnieper, which, moreover, went to the RF Armed Forces for free, no one will give back to Russia. And on all plans to wring out the rest of the Black Sea coast from Ukraine, including Nikolaev and Odessa, and breaking through a land corridor to Transnistria, you can put a big and bold cross. And all the subsequent actions of both warring parties are nothing more than just attempts to improve their positions in the upcoming peace negotiations.

      I have been asking myself the same questions for the last year and a half, and I also cannot find an acceptable answer to them. Rather, there is even one answer, and moreover, it fits perfectly into all logical constructions and answers all the questions that have arisen and arise, but it turns out to be painfully vile.

      Do you really and in all seriousness think that they were really afraid of someone there? I sincerely admire your optimism and clearness of consciousness. winked
