Macron vows to seek with his European partners to impose new sanctions on Russia
French President Emmanuel Macron pledged Sunday to work with his European partners to impose new sanctions on Russia after Moscow annexed four Ukrainian regions, the Elysee Palace announced.
During a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky, the French president reiterated his "condemnation in the strongest terms of Russia's illegal annexation" of four Ukrainian regions, according to a statement by the French presidency.
The statement noted that Macron "reaffirmed France's determination to help Ukraine restore its full sovereignty and territorial integrity and to work with its European partners to impose new sanctions."
On Wednesday, the European Union responded to Russia's annexation of four regions by proposing to set a ceiling for Russian oil prices and to impose additional sanctions on trade dealings with Moscow.
