Nehammer: Important to stay in contact with Putin

Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer stressed on Monday it is essential for the European Union leaders to stay in contact with Russian President Vladimir Putin and discuss the situation in Ukraine.

In a press briefing following the bilateral meeting of the two leaders, Nehammer made it clear to Putin that the war in Ukraine must end and that the matter of war crimes against civilians must be investigated. Nehammer revealed that Putin claimed Ukrainian authorities failed to keep the humanitarian corridors open as previously agreed, and that the Ukrainian forces were behind the civilian deaths in the city of Bucha near Kiev.

According to Nehammer, Putin lost trust in the international community, however, Nehammer ensured him that the Austrian government would support the international state judiciary in order to hold those who committed war crimes accountable.
