On Tuesday, Russian President Vladimir Putin urged Western nations to stop supplying weapons to Ukraine during a telephone conversation in a conversation with French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.
Putin told Macron about Russia’s efforts to evacuate civilians from Mariupol, the Xinhua News Agency quoted a Kremlin statement. The Russian president urged Western nations to disarm Kyiv, saying Russia was open to dialogue.
In response to Macron’s concerns about the issue, Putin pointed out that Western sanctions on Russia have exacerbated global food insecurity.
French President Emmanuel Macron also ordered Putin to stop immediately in Ukraine over the phone and urged Russia to lift the embargo on Ukraine’s exports via the Black Sea.
Ukraine’s President Zelensky has so far set a reserve cost of about $ 600 billion for war damage in Ukraine. He urged foreign companies to withdraw from the Russian market. Not doing so “means that you are directly supporting the war machine.”
Russia’s own $ 1.8 trillion economy, hit by western sanctions, is also heading for the largest contraction since the years following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Under the decree signed by Putin on Tuesday, the Kremlin has 10 days to prepare a list of sanctions for certain people and entities in “unfriendly” states.
