TEHRAN (Tasnim) – During the Social Democratic Party’s Europe Festival in Germany, the country’s Chancellor Olaf Scholz found himself fervently defending his position against protesters who called him a warmonger during his speech in support of Ukraine.
Addressing the crowd outside the Stadthalle in Falkensee near Berlin, Scholz called out, "Dear shouters," amidst whistles. He asserted that Russian President Vladimir Putin was the "warmonger" being condemned by the protesters, adding, "If you had any sense in your heads," according to Die Stimme Berlin.
The German Chancellor emphasized that due to "Russia's act of aggression", there was no alternative but to support Ukraine, even with weapons.
Almost 100 festivalgoers yelled at the chancellor outside for minutes. They kept calling him a “warmonger”, “liar” and “bandit”. They demanded "make peace without weapons" and "get away!" Some waved peace flags, while others wore shirts with symbols of Russia.
