Macron states that Russia is aggressor against Ukraine

Ukraine did not unleash a conflict with Russia; on the contrary, Russia is an aggressor that also occupied Crimea.

French President Emmanuel Macron said this at a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Monday in Paris, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"We need to understand that aggression comes from Russia, that is, not Ukraine is an aggressor. We also do not recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea. We know who launched the war," Macron said.

He has noted that all parties are obliged to fulfill their obligations under the Minsk agreements.

"I think we have several months to achieve success in these agreements. I understand that this is not the optimal format, but I do not see better proposals so far," the French president said.
