Macron explained why he needed frequent conversations with Putin

Emmanuel Macron often called Putin at the request of Kyiv, but more often on his own initiative.

Macron admitted that his communication with Vladimir Putin did not work, and after a visit to Ukraine, he began to feel this especially.

" Considering the number of hours that I spent talking with him, and considering the insight that I have now that I have visited Irpin and Bucha – I'm not only disappointed. It's not a strong enough word, considering what this man's action has been driven to,” – he explained.

Macron emphasized that at times Ukraine asked him to call the Kremlin.

“Sometimes I called at the request of President Zelensky when he wanted to convey certain messages or proposals to Putin” , – the President of France said, adding that even if he did not want to, he would have to negotiate with the Russian Federation later.

He also claims that he had no illusions about the intentions of the Russian leader.

“That is why I attached so much effort to prevent this war from starting. Therefore, in the winter I went to Moscow, and before that I spent so much time with this man. Because I understood that each stage to which he would move, each new step would create something irreversible for both Ukraine and Russia, & ndash; he explained.

The President of France has repeatedly criticized for telephone conversations with Putin already during the war in Ukraine.
