On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin will hold a meeting with German Chancellor Olaf Schulz in Moscow, which will be their first since the latter became prime minister in his country.

“It is scheduled to discuss urgent issues on the bilateral and international agenda, including those related to (Washington and NATO) providing Russia with sustainable and legally binding security guarantees, and the settlement of the Ukraine conflict,” the Kremlin press service said.

The Kremlin spokesman did not rule out discussing what surrounds the “North Stream 2” pipeline to pump Russian gas to Germany through the Baltic.

For his part, a German government source told reporters that Schulz seeks to “better understand the goals and Russian concerns,” and that he does not expect to achieve any specific results during the meeting, but attaches great importance to negotiations with the Russian President.
