German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Wednesday there would be consequences if Ukraine's borders were violated by Russia but that Germany and other countries were doing everything possible to avoid that happening. "We have a very clear view. We want everyone to respect the integrity of borders," Scholz told Welt TV when asked if the Nord Stream 2 pipeline could be used to exert pressure on Russia.

"Everyone understands that there will be consequences if that doesn't happen but the thing is to do everything to make sure they remain unbreached," said Scholz.
