Austrian Chancellor: Putin “in his own logic of war”

The Austrian leader recently traveled to the devastated Ukrainian town of Bucha to see for himself what Russian forces had done there. He said he discussed the carnage with Putin.

“I made the trip to Moscow to confront President Putin with what I saw,” he told Todd. “You know, it wasn’t a friendly conversation. It was a frank and hard conversation. And I told him what I had seen. I saw the war crimes. I saw the massive loss of the Russian army.

The Austrian chancellor said it was imperative the world continued to confront Putin about what he and his forces were doing.

“What is needed is to confront him all the time with what is happening in Ukraine,” Nehammer said.

“I think it’s necessary. You know, at the end of our talks, he told me in German that it was better for the war to end sooner than later. So I think he knows exactly what’s going on now. And we have to face it. In other words, we have to look him in the eye and we have to confront him with what we see in Ukraine.
