“As for Ukraine and Russia, our position remains unchanged: firmness and dialogue,” Fabius said, adding that “No reasonable people can offer to fight with Russia forgetting about history and geography.”
Ukraine “should have an opportunity to have good relations with neighbouring Russia and the European Union which is also a neighbour,” the top French diplomat said. “This will be no easy to attain this,” Fabius said, noting that growth of patriotic moods in Russia and Ukraine is observed.
Meanwhile, French authorities intend “to promote conflict settlement and de-escalation of the situation” between Kiev and Moscow, Fabius added.
The Elysee Palace has earlier proposed to hold a new meeting between the leaders of France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine in “the Normandy format”. Such meeting was held in early June on the sidelines of a ceremony on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of Normandy Allied Landings.
