Macron says he prevented escalation with Putin

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Tuesday that he prevented further escalation of the crisis on the Russia-Ukraine border in talks with Russian Presiden Vladimir Putin on Monday. "It was for me to block the game to prevent an escalation and open up new perspectives," Marcon said, adding that he "obtained that there will be no degradation or escalation."

However, the French president added he did not expect Putin to "make any gestures" during the discussion. Macron will meet with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Polish President Andrzej Duda today to address the crisis as Germany and the United Kingdom send additional troops to Lithuania and Poland respectively.
