In the context of French-Russian consultations, French President Emmanuel Macaron said in an interview with the Swedish channel "SVT" that it is very important and necessary to coordinate and cooperate with Russia as a key partner to ensure security in Europe
Where he said;
"I respect Vladimir Putin, and I am one of those who believe that we have to adopt a new approach to security affairs in cooperation with Russia."
But Macaron criticized President Putin for his ambition to wipe out the European Union, which France rejects. "Putin's dream is the disintegration of the European Union," McCron said.
Adding that "Russia is not an ideal country in the field of respect for human rights."
