French President Emmanuel Macron has let correspondents know that President Vladimir Putin guaranteed him that Russian powers would not increase the emergency close to Ukraine’s boundaries.
“I got a confirmation there would be no decay or heightening,” he said prior to meeting Ukraine’s chief. Notwithstanding, Russia said any idea of an assurance was “wrong”.
Russia has denied any designs to attack Ukraine, however it has gathered in excess of 100,000 soldiers close to its boundaries and have activated their Navy.
The strains between Russia, Ukraine and the West come almost eight years after Russia added Ukraine’s southern Crimea landmass.
