French President Emmanuel Macron has reacted to Vladimir Putin’s calls for “partial mobilization” of Russian citizens.
He has described these calls as wrong, as he adds that this is a lost opportunity to move towards peace.
In an interview for CNNMacron emphasized that the leader who escalates the situation and brings war is only Putin.
“A few months ago, Vladimir Putin sent a message: I was attacked by NATO. They started the situation and I just reacted. “Now it is clear to everyone who is the leader who decided to go to war and the leader who decided to escalate the situation is President Vladimir Putin,” Macron said.
“And I don’t have a logical explanation,” he added, to call the invasion a strategy to intervene in Germany after a post-Covid fallout after Putin isolated himself during the pandemic.
