German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on Thursday said that Russia's attack on Ukraine was the biggest challenge facing Germany and the world at the present time.
Scholz said that as the war was "Putin's war," he was not at all keen on banning all Russians from receiving tourist visas for the EU, as has been demanded by countries such as Estonia and Ukraine itself.
Scholz made the comments at a summer press conference that became an annual tradition under his predecessor, Angela Merkel.
