German Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz opposed a no-fly zone over Ukraine, noting that it would mean the likelihood of a military confrontation between NATO and Russia, and no one wants that.

Scholz stated this at a forum organized by the newspaper Die Welt.

“We will not establish no-fly zones over Ukraine. This would mean a direct military confrontation with Russia, with Russian warplanes,” the publication quotes the words of the head of the German government.

“With U.S. President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron and other allies, we agree that there should be no military confrontation between NATO and Russia. No one can want that,” he said.
