The Kremlin’s press service reports that Putin complained to the French president about the alleged violation of the Minsk agreements by Ukraine. The Russian president claims that Kyiv is exacerbating the situation on the line of contact with the “connivance of a number of Western countries”, which are also “pumping Ukraine up with modern weapons”.

In addition, Putin stated that Russia wants to legally fixed guarantees that Ukraine will not be admitted to NATO.

The press service of the Elysée Palace has not yet reported on the conversation between the presidents of France and the Russian Federation.

  1. “The Russian president claims that Kyiv is exacerbating the situation on the line of contact with the “connivance of a number of Western countries”, which are also “pumping Ukraine up with modern weapons”.”

    Is Putler trying to say it’s OK for us to send troops into a foreign country, armed to the teeth, but that country is not allowed to defend itself? Have Ukraine invaded Russia, no? Have Ukraine destroyed Russian hardware in Ukraine, yes?

    • “The Kremlin’s press service reports that Putin complained to the French president about the alleged violation of the Minsk agreements by Ukraine.”

      But at the same time, Putin won’t meet in the Normandy format or even speak with Zelensky. Again, just like Ukraine is simply some territory not a sovereign country. If Macron had balls instead of a white flag he would tell Putin to stop invading his neighbors and put a sock in it.
