Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow will do everything possible to find compromises in the Ukraine crisis.
“For our part, we will do everything we can to find compromises that suit everyone,” Putin said after Monday’s meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Nobody wins if war breaks out on the European continent, Putin added.
Macron, for his part, said he had proposed concrete security guarantees to Putin.
“President Putin assured me of his willingness to engage in this, and his desire to maintain stability and Ukraine’s territorial integrity,” Macron said.
The meeting between the two presidents lasted for almost five hours. Ahead of the meeting, Macron said he hoped the talks could be a step towards easing the crisis in Ukraine.
