New sanctions against Russia will be imposed only in case of escalation of the situation in Ukraine, said the President of France Emmanuel macron, stressing that he does not want it.

«I confirm that I said that if necessary, we will need to strengthen sanctions, but if there is an escalation. If there is de-escalation, it will not. And I wish that was just a de-escalation,» said macron at a press conference after talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
