Putin also called on the head of the European Council that “no acts of violence against migrants should be allowed”.
The Russian leader described the sanctions against Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s regime, which the EU considers “counterproductive”.
According to the Kremlin, Michel and Putin also talked, inter alia, on the situation in eastern Ukraine. “The president expressed his concern at the provocations of the Ukrainian side leading to increased tensions in the Donbas,” the Kremlin informed.
In a previous phone conversation with Putin on September 8, Michel condemned Belarus’ use of migrants as a weapon against EU Member States.
