“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.”

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.
