During the one-hour-long phone call, Scholz renewed his call for a diplomatic solution to the conflict, and urged the Russian side to take immediate steps to end the military operations, according to the spokesperson.

“The Chancellor told the Russian President that there must be a diplomatic solution as quickly as possible, including the withdrawal of Russian troops,” Hebestreit said.

They "agreed to remain in contact,” Hebestreit also said.
