French President Emmanuel Macron has serious disagreements with Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding Ukraine and "will not allow him to get away with anything." Macron made a corresponding statement in an interview with Reuters.
"I speak with everybody. Very directly and very frankly... On Ukraine, we have major differences with Vladimir Putin. I take note of it. France won’t let him get away with anything," Macron said.
It may be recalled, that France is a party to negotiations in the "Norman format" to resolve the conflict in the Donbas.
