Russo-Ukraine War: “Putin informed (them) of the actual situation,” his office said in a statement.
The Kremlin said Russian President Vladimir Putin described a “gross violation” of international humanitarian law by Ukraine’s military during a phone conversation with the leaders of France and Germany on Saturday.
“Putin informed (them) of the actual situation in Ukraine,” his office said in a statement. “In particular, several instances of open violation of norms of international humanitarian law by Ukrainian security forces were cited,” the statement said.
The Kremlin said Putin accused the Ukrainian military of “extraordinary executions of dissenters” and “taking hostages and using civilians as human shields”.
He also claimed that the Ukrainian military was deploying heavy weapons near hospitals, schools and kindergartens.
“At the same time, nationalist battalions are systematically disrupting operations to rescue the population, intimidating civilians during attempts to evacuate,” the Kremlin said.
The Kremlin said Putin urged France’s Emmanuel Macron and Germany’s Olaf Scholz to pressure the Kyiv authorities to stop these “criminal activities”.
The Russian President also informed Macron and Scholz about talks between Russian and Ukrainian negotiators.
“In this regard, the leaders of the three countries addressed some issues related to agreements being reached on the implementation of well-known Russian demands,” the Kremlin said without giving any details.
