Presidents of Russia and France Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron held telephone conversations on Tuesday, May 3. According to BFM TV, the conversation lasted more than two hours.

The dialogue between the two leaders was announced earlier in the day by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov and the Elysee Palace.

Macron and Putin have not held talks since the events in Ukrainian Bucha.

Prior to that, on April 13, Macron announced that he plans to hold regular telephone conversations with Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian leader Vladimir Zelensky. Macron said that, in his opinion, Putin respects France and distinguishes it from Western countries.

On April 8, Macron called it his duty to continue negotiations with Putin. According to him, from the very beginning of the special operation to protect Donbass, France showed neither naivety nor condescension towards the Russian Federation. In addition, the French president said that Paris is ready to become the guarantor of Ukraine’s security when a peace agreement is reached.

On March 7, the President of France stated that it is necessary to treat Russia and the Russian people with respect. According to him, without the participation of the Russian Federation in the creation of a “large-scale security architecture” of the European continent, it will not be possible to build a lasting peace. Macron stressed that history and geography oblige this.

On February 24, Putin announced the launch of a special operation to protect the civilian population of the DPR and LPR. It was preceded by an aggravation of the situation in the region, an appeal by the leadership of the DPR and LPR to the Russian Federation with a request for help, and the subsequent recognition by Russia of the independence of the Donbass republics.

The Ukrainian authorities have been conducting a military operation against the residents of Donbass, who refused to recognize the results of the coup d’etat in Ukraine, since 2014.
