German Chancellor Olaf Scholz called Putin a warmonger when he spoke in Germany's Falkensee on June 2 at a European SPD festival. The spectators who met him and members of the government began to shout to them "warmongers", "go away" and "a world without weapons", to which Scholz responded with an emotional speech. Rain drew attention to this.
“The warmonger is Putin with his 200,000 troops in Ukraine! He risks the lives of his own citizens for the imperialist dream. <...> While you are shouting about a world without weapons, Putin has collected a huge number of tanks and cruise missiles and sent them to Ukraine. This is murder,” Scholz said.
According to Tagesspiegel, Scholz said that the country has no other options than supporting Ukraine with weapons, and also noted that this war threatens peace and freedom. “Yes, it is necessary, if a country is attacked, then it can, it must defend itself, how else?”
