French President Emmanuel Macron this week said that negotiation with Russia could still end the war in Ukraine — and that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion was a “huge mistake” based on “a fake narrative.”
Macron made the statements in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulus broadcast Thursday.
“I think that President Putin made a huge mistake by launching this war,” the French president said. “He decided on his own, based on a fake narrative, saying ‘NATO will use Ukraine to attack Russia,’ which is totally wrong.”
Asked by Stephanopoulos if a leader who acted that way could be trusted as a negotiating partner, Macron said simply, “This is exactly the question.”
“I think he made a mistake,” Macron continued. “Is it impossible to come back [to] the table and negotiate something? I think it’s still possible.”
