MACRON LINE OF COMMUNICATION WITH PUTIN

Unlike other Western leaders, Macron has kept the doors of communication open and spoken numerousl times to Putin, and travelled to Moscow prior to the war, with an aim to end Russia’s aggression in Ukraine. Unfortunately as it pertains to the Macron-Putin relationship those who are sought out for meetings are in stronger positions than those who seek the meetings. Macron initiates most meetings and calls with Putin, but Putin knows not to give anything away. Putin does not actually engage in much dialogue with Macron. Instead, he gains information through Macron’s actions.

UKRAINE WILL BE REQUIRED TO ASSENT TO A DONBAS AGREEMENT
