Emmanuel Macron assures that Vladimir Putin guaranteed him that there will be no ‘escalation’ in the conflict with Ukraine

The French president, Emmanuel Macron, assured this Tuesday that he achieved, during his meeting on Monday with his counterpart Vladimir Putin, the guarantee that “that there will be no degradation or escalation” in the crisis facing Russia with Western countries over Ukraine.

“For me, it was about… preventing an escalation and opening up new perspectives… And this goal was achieved,” Macron told reporters on the plane that took him from Moscow to Kiev, where he will meet for the day with President Volodimir Zelenski.

The French leader was in Moscow on Monday, where met with the Russian president for more than five hours.

“I have assured that there will be no deterioration or escalation,” Macron said.

Westerners fear an invasion of Ukraine, as tens of thousands of Russian soldiers have been stationed on the Ukrainian border for weeks.

Facing one of the worst crises between Russians and Westerners since the Cold War, the Europeans have intensified diplomatic contacts in recent days.
