French leader Emmanuel Macron on Monday, March 28, announced plans to have a new telephone conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the coming days, during which he is going to discuss the details of the planned humanitarian operation to evacuate people from Mariupol with the participation of Greece and Turkey.
“Today, on the part of Russia, we observe non-compliance with international humanitarian law, which is inviolable even in time of war. We have condemned this attitude and I intend to speak with President Putin in the coming days,” the French President said on Monday, March 28, during his campaign trip to Dijon.
Macron also announced the completion of negotiations with the Ukrainian side and the mayor of Mariupol, noting that it is impossible to conduct operations without their consent. “Then I will have to provide guarantees on the terms, even operational ones, with President Putin, so that the Russian troops comply with the terms of this operation,” he said.
Earlier, Macron announced France’s plans, together with Turkey and Greece, to conduct a humanitarian operation in Mariupol.
