Macron asks Zelensky to make concessions to Russia? French response


2022-05-14: [Article Link In an interview with President Zelensky of Ukraine, it was implied that French President Macron called on Ukraine to make concessions and restore Russia’s reputation. France responded. On 13 May, the United States newspaper La Politique reported that French officials had denied the charges against Zelensky. On 13 May, an official of the French Presidency said that the discussions between French President Macron and Russian President Putin had been conducted with the prior consent of Zelensky and had never demanded any concessions from Zelensky. “He (Macron) has always said that the terms of negotiations with Russia are to be decided by the Ukrainians themselves.” Radio and Television Italy aired an interview on the evening of May 12 with Ukrainian President Zelensky. When asked about Macron’s warning to Europe not to humiliate Russian President Putin, Zelensky responded: “We want Russian troops to leave our territory, and we are not in Russian territory. We will not use our territory to restore Putin’s face, which is unfair.” He also stressed that Ukraine would never recognize Crimea as part of Russia. Zelensky also said that it would be futile for Macron to try to find a way out for Russia. Since the outbreak of the Russian-Ukraine conflict, French President Macron has been active in his good offices. In May, he warned against humiliating Russia because of the Russian-Ukraine conflict if any peaceful solution to the Ukrainian issue is sought. “I have mentioned this earlier, and we will have to do that with Ukraine and Russia at the negotiating table (peace). Ukraine and Russia will discuss and negotiate when the negotiations will end (conflict). But it is impossible (to achieve peace) to deny one of the parties, or to exclude one another, or even humiliate one another.”
