PARIS, December 8. /TASS/. French President Emmanuel Macron is set to discuss the situation in eastern Ukraine with his Russian and Ukrainian counterparts, Vladimir Putin and Vladimir Zelensky, in the coming days, the AFP news agency reported citing a source at the French presidential administration.

According to the source, the French leader has already discussed the issue with his counterparts from the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and the United States. This conversation followed Putin’s video conference with US President Joe Biden.

The presidents of Russia and the United States, Vladimir Putin and Joe Biden, held two-hour talks on Tuesday via secure video communication channels.
