The president of the occupying country also discussed the situation around negotiations between Ukraine and Russia with Macron.

Allegedly, Putin expressed his readiness to "continue the dialogue."

Background: On the night of 4 March, the Kadyrovites, a unit of the Russian Army Forces, started shelling and firing at the Zaporizhzhya NPP building, setting it on fire. The threat of a nuclear catastrophe was announced at the plant.

Later, control of the Zaporizhzhya NPP was seized by the Russian occupation forces of the "Kadyrov" division.

The Russian military seized the Chernobyl nuclear power plant on 24 February.
