Vladimir Putin committed a "historic and fundamental error" by invading Ukraine, says Emmanuel Macron

French President Emmanuel Macron says he told Vladimir Putin he had committed a "historic and fundamental error" by invading Ukraine and was now "isolated", the BBC reports.

"I think, and I told him, that he made a historic and fundamental error for his people, for himself and for history," he said in an interview with French regional media. Macron also did not rule out a visit to Kyiv soon.

The French leader has had far more contact with Putin since Russian forces invaded Ukraine, compared to most of his Western counterparts.

The last reported call was a three-way conversation on Saturday between Macron, Putin, and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
