(Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin has updated French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz on the status of talks between Moscow and Kyiv and their concerns over the humanitarian situation in Ukraine during three-way talks with the Kremlin on Saturday called reacting.
The Kremlin did not elaborate on Putin’s comments on the status of the talks, 17 days into the war that began when Russian troops invaded Ukraine on February 24.
On Friday, Putin said there had been “certain positive changes” in the talks that took place in Belarus, but gave no details.
The Kremlin statement said Macron and Scholz raised questions about the humanitarian situation arising from Russia’s so-called special military operation in Ukraine, and that Putin responded with allegations of human rights abuses by Ukrainian forces. She provided no evidence to support these claims.
The three leaders agreed to keep in touch, the Kremlin said.
