Further details of Putin-Macron phone call emerge

Further details of the telephone conversation between French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday have emerged.

Further details of the telephone conversation between French President Emmanuel Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday have emerged.

In Macron‘s view, the worst is yet to come in Ukraine, the Élysée Palace said after the phone call, adding that it was now clear that Putin’s goal was the subjugation of the entire country.

The Kremlin said that Putin had stressed his goals would be achieved in Ukraine whatever goals the West set. “Attempts to gain time by dragging out negotiations only lead to additional demands on Kiev in our negotiating position,” it quoted him as saying.

Putin criticized Macron‘s address to the French nation and its key claims about the conflict, the statement added. Macron in turn told Putin that Russia’s claim to be fighting Nazis in Ukraine was a lie.

Putin apparently rejected this and provided the French president with “well-founded explanations of the significant role of neo-Nazis in Kiev’s politics,” the Kremlin said.

“The long-standing genocide of the civilian population in the Donbass, which has led to numerous victims and forced hundreds of thousands of people to seek asylum in Russia, is being hushed up,” the Kremlin quoted the Russian president as saying.
