DAVOS, Switzerland — Vladimir Putin will not win the war in Ukraine, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz says today, assessing that the Russian president has already failed in all of his strategic aims.

Russia’s plan to capture all of Ukraine is “further away today than it was at the beginning” of its invasion on February 24 as Ukraine put up an impressive defense, Scholz tells the Davos World Economic Forum.

“Our goal is crystal clear — Putin must not win this war. And I am convinced that he will not win it,” says the German chancellor.
