French President Emmanuel Macron said that his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin today he meant to discuss preparations for a Normandy-format summit on the Donbas conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Monday there was no risk of increased radiation levels after a blast at a military site in northern Russia on August 8 that killed at least five people.

Performing after Putin's congratulations in the summer residence on the South of France, Macron expressed hope that he may reach an agreement with Vladimir Putin about holding a summit in the Normandy Format for the Donbas conflict settlement.

"What Macron is also doing, by inviting the Russian president - even though Russia was kicked out of what was the G-8 over its annexation of Crimea - is making the point that Russia remains an influential and key player internationally, and it is important to keep a dialogue with Moscow open".

"Because I believe in a European Russia". The population in Idlib is living under bombs, children are being killed.

But he said that phone conversations with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy had given him "cautious" grounds for optimism.

Macron also called for the respect of free speech and free elections in Russian Federation.

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of Moscow in recent weeks to protest the authorities' decision to block prominent opposition figures from standing in local elections.

"I must express our profound worry about the situation in Idlib".

In response to Macron's comments, Putin said Russian Federation, which entered the war in 2015 in support of Assad, backed the Syrian army's operations in Idlib.

Kiev's forces have been battling pro-Russian separatists in the Donbass region of eastern Ukraine since 2014, in a conflict that has claimed more than 13,000 lives.

Macron reasoned: "It's not today that we are going to resolve misunderstandings that were installed back in the 90s".

Speaking shortly after welcoming Putin, Macron also said the two leaders would discuss how to de-escalate tensions over Iran, the Syria conflict and arms control issues.
