The Kremlin has spoken positively of French President Emmanuel Macron’s efforts to mediate in the Ukraine conflict, with government spokesman Dmitry Peskov praising his commitment to a stalled peace plan, Macedonian news agency MIA reports.
Macron stressed at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that implementing the 2015 plan was the only way to settle the conflict, Peskov said.
“That’s right, and it’s a good sign,” he added, according to the Interfax agency. Meanwhile, the top Russian official accused Ukraine of not committing to the agreements laid out in the so-called Minsk process.
“There are some positive trends as well as less positive ones,” Peskov added.
