"Such measures have become a forced and inevitable response to Kyiv's provocative attacks on Russia's civilian infrastructure," the Kremlin said in a statement following the telephone talks, the first between Putin and Scholz since mid-September.

"Attention was drawn to the destructive line of Western states, including Germany, that is pumping the Kyiv regime with weapons, and are training the Ukrainian military," the Kremlin added.
