French President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday that his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin had made a “historic and fundamental mistake” by invading Ukraine and was now “isolated”.
“I think, and I told him, that he made a historic and fundamental mistake for his people, for himself and for history,” he said in an interview with French regional media.
“I think he isolated himself,” Macron said. “Isolating yourself is one thing, but being able to get out of it is a difficult path”.

Macron also said he had not “ruled out” a visit to Kyiv.
