German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that it's "absolutely necessary" for Europe leaders to talk directly to the Russian President Vladimir Putin in an effort to end the conflict in Ukraine, adding that he and his French counterpart will continue to do, media agencies reported on Saturday.

Sholz told DPA: “There are some countries needed, and some leaders needed, that speak to him — and it is necessary that they are clear."

He added: "When I speak to Putin I say, for instance, the same things I said to you," continuing: "Please understand that there will be no dictate(d) peace, and if you really believe that you will rob some land and then hope that the times will change and all the things will become normal again, this is a mistake."

It's worthy to mention that French President Emmanuel Macron, German chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi took a night train headed to the Ukrainian capital, Kyiv today, Thursday.

The German and Italian channels, “ZDF” and “La Repubblica” reported that the three leaders took this private train from Poland and they are expected to arrive in Kyiv in the morning, today.

The Italian newspaper published pictures of the three leaders on the train, according to AFP.

The French Presidency confirmed that Macron is on his way to Ukraine today, Thursday, according to Reuters.

It took weeks to prepare for this visit, and the European leaders are looking forward to mitigating criticism within Ukraine over their response to the war.

Kyiv has criticized France, Germany, and Italy for hesitating to support Ukraine, and accused them of being slow in providing weapons, and putting their own interests above the freedom and security of Ukraine.

Previously, the German newspaper “Bild am Sonntag” announced that Scholz, Macron, and Draghi would visit Kyiv this month.

According to the paper, the joint visit is France’s idea, and Macron preferred to postpone it until the parliamentary elections in his country end, especially since Scholz highlighted that the visit should produce something tangible, not for taking a picture.
