Putin says Ukrainian neutrality key to any settlement

MOSCOW, Feb 28 (Reuters) – Russia’s Vladimir Putin told French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday that a Ukraine settlement was only possible if Kyiv was neutral, “denazified” and “demilitarised” and Russian control over annexed Crimea was formally recognised, the Kremlin said.

He made the comments in a telephone call with the French leader, the Kremlin said in a readout.

“Russia is open to talks with representatives of Ukraine and expects the (talks) to lead to the desired results,” it said.
