“At some point, the President of Ukraine will have to negotiate with Russia,”— Macron said.

He stressed that France “is not at war with Russia”, writes TFI, and the only desired outcome of the conflict for her— Ukrainian victory or cessation of hostilities.

From the very beginning of the military operation, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has declared his readiness for negotiations with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin. The Kremlin has repeatedly stressed that such a meeting can take place only after the delegations of the two countries draw up a draft peace agreement.

Since February 24, the parties have held several rounds of negotiations and sent each other proposals for a settlement, but in mid-May they announced the suspension of the dialogue. The head of the Russian delegation, Vladimir Medinsky, specified that the discussion was frozen at the initiative of Kyiv. The Ukrainian authorities explained the changes during the negotiations by the events in Bucha (the Ministry of Defense denied the involvement of the Russian military in the killing of civilians in the city).
