Recommendations for Chancellor Scholz’s Visit to Moscow
RUSSIA CRISIS POLICY RECOMMENDATIONSExpand All
Scholz should go with one main message, the missive often repeated during his recent DC visit: Europe and the United States are in sync on Ukraine. Macron’s pursuit of a channel of dialogue does not mean that this is an opening for driving a wedge into Western unity. Scholz’s visit needs to make this clear.
Stick unwaveringly to the line that the cost of an invasion will be incredibly high for Russia. Make it clear, at least to Putin if not in public, that in case of an invasion there is no way to save the Nord Stream 2 pipeline.
