Putin warned Macron that Russia would continue to fight unrelentingly against nationalist armed groups in Ukraine.
"It was noted that during the special operation to protect Donbass, Russia intends to continue the uncompromising fight against militants of nationalist armed groups who commit war crimes, including placing military equipment in residential areas and using the civilian population as human shields," the Kremlin press service said.
According to Macron, the Russian leader explained to him the significance of neo-Nazis in the state policy of Kiev in their telephone conversation.
According to French Prime Minister Jean Castex, the leaders discussed humanitarian issues relating to the Ukraine crisis.
