Macron does not believe regime change in Russia to lead to positive changes
KYIV. Feb 17 (Interfax-Ukraine) – French President Emmanuel Macron is skeptical about talks about regime change in Russia, he considers helping Ukraine in the struggle for independence a top priority.
“Frankly speaking, I don’t believe in regime change. And when I hear how other people are advocating the regime change, I ask: what to change for? Who is next? Who is your leader?” Macron said, answering questions at the Munich Security Conference on Friday.
He said over the last decades there have been many regime changes in many countries, and “these were failures.” Macron believes that “Russia needs to present something sustainable in the long term.”
Macron said it is needed to find a way to force Russia to return to the negotiating table on Ukraine’s terms.
