Today Vladimir Putin receives the Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer in Moscow. The meeting will be the first between the Russian president and a European leader since the invasion began.
– At the moment it is not appropriate, says Deputy Mayor of Mariupol Sergej Orlow, in Bild, about the meeting.
Nehammer flew to the Russian capital via Turkey on Sunday night. His intention with the trip is to “do everything possible to end the war,” writes Die Presse.
However, the Federal Chancellor has no realistic hope that the war will end in the foreseeable future. Therefore, he will focus on the need for humanitarian corridors and address the Butja massacre, where the Russian regime, despite numerous trials, abdicates all responsibility.
The Chancellor stressed that he had informed the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky of the visit. But on the Ukrainian side there are those who criticize the Chancellor’s decision to face Putin face to face.
“What arrogance on the part of the Austrian chancellor who seriously believes it makes sense to go now that Putin has shown what a brutal war criminal he is,” an anonymous Ukrainian diplomat told Bild.
Nor does Sergei Orlow, deputy mayor of Mariupol, consider the meeting a good idea.
– It’s not appropriate at the moment. The crimes that Russia is currently committing on Ukrainian soil are still ongoing. The situation in Mariupol may be even worse than what Butja has seen, he tells the German tabloid.
The conversation between the two leaders in Moscow is expected to begin at 2 pm Swedish time and will not be followed by a joint press conference. According to Die Presse, there was interest on the Russian side in keeping one, but Austria is said to have said no to this.
First call since March
Another summit on Monday is between US President Joe Biden and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The Indian leader has so far refused to distance himself from the Russian invasion war and India abstained from voting when Russia was expelled from the UN Human Rights Council last week. In the digital meeting, Biden will address the aftermath of the war in Ukraine and how to “mitigate its destabilizing effect on the global market for food, goods and commodities,” White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said before the meeting, according to the Associated Press.
The call will be the first between Washington and New Delhi since March.
