He promised that Germany and Europe will continue to support Ukraine financially, politically, and with weapons. However, he said, NATO will not become a combatant and he promised Ukraine a "Marshall plan" of long-term support for reconstruction after the war. As G7 President, the German Chancellor wants to convene an international conference to work towards an agreement on investments in Ukraine.

Scholz said his goal at the upcoming EU summit is to mobilize EU members to grant candidate status to Ukraine and Moldova. He said the EU needs to set up accession negotiations for Albania and North Macedonia, and he pushed for solutions to the problem of grain exports from Ukraine and said the German government is coordinating with partners on measures to prevent energy shortages this winter.
