On the decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin attacking Ukraine sparked a combination of resentment, the desire for hegemony in the region and the effects of isolation during the pandemic, French President Emmanuel Macron said. He expressed this on Friday, September 23 in an interview with CNN.

“I have no rational explanation (for Putin’s motives. – Ed.). I think this is a combination of resentment, a strategy of hegemony in the region and, I would say, these are the consequences of Covid-19 – its isolation,” the French president replied when asked about the reasons for the decision. Putin to attack Ukraine.

“A few months ago, Putin claimed: NATO is behaving aggressively towards us, I was just reacting to the situation. But now it is clear to everyone that it was President Putin who decided to start a war,” Macron emphasized.

Macron explains why he talks to Putin on the phone

Before and after the outbreak of the war, the French president was one of the few world leaders who spoke regularly by telephone with Putin, urging him to stop the invasion. The last meeting between the two presidents took place on September 11.

“He feels like we didn’t respect him enough after the 1990s,” Macron explained. The French leader stressed that his dialogue with Putin still makes sense and pointed out that thanks to this it was possible to organize an IAEA mission to the Zaporozhye ASE. “We are, I hope, in the final stages of reaching an agreement to protect this station and move towards demilitarization,” Macron said.

He stressed that Western countries will continue to support Ukraine, noting that Kiev must decide on the terms for peace and negotiations with Russia.
