The exchange of views on the situation around Ukraine was continued. Responding to the concerns expressed by Emmanuel Macron, the President of Russia emphasised again that during the special military operation the Armed Forces of Russia have been doing everything possible to protect the lives of the civilians, including by organising humanitarian corridors for their safe evacuation. The numerous war crimes committed each day by Ukrainian security and nationalist forces, in particular the massive missile and artillery fire on Donbass cities, was brought to notice.
Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron also spoke about the state of talks between Russian and Ukrainian representatives, including Russia’s principled approaches to the elaboration of potential agreements.
The leaders agreed to stay in contact.
