“We are not at war with Russia,” French president stresses

“We are not at war with Russia,” French President Emmanuel Macron said.

In an address to the nation on Wednesday, Macron said the war against Ukraine had created a “rupture” in Europe. 

Macron added he puts an importance on maintaining contact with both the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin. 

The French leader said he had kept up contact with Putin to try to “convince him to drop arms” and also to prevent the “enlargement of the conflict.”
