Vladimir Putin made a visit yesterday to France and held a meeting with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, where he was interviewed by the French newspaper and it will be posted in tomorrow´s edition, while the video was previously published on the website.

The two leaders held a joint press conference on Monday after a meeting at the lavish Palace of Versailles, now the host of an exhibition commemorating the 300th anniversary of Peter the Great's diplomatic visit to Paris and surrounding areas, France24 reported.

Nonetheless, Russia's ambassador to Paris, Alexander Orlov said on Monday that he expected this first meeting between the two men to be full of "smiles" and marking the beginning of "a very good and long relationship".

Addressing his presidential election campaign, he said: "Russia Today and Sputnik were agents of influence in this campaign and, on several occasions, disseminated lies about myself and my campaign".

The two leaders discussed the issue of terrorism at length, as well as Syria and Ukraine, although admittedly from two different standpoints. "Anything can be done in this virtual world", Putin said.

Asked if sanctions against Russian Federation were helping to stop the fighting in eastern Ukraine, Putin said, "Here is the answer: in no way".

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss internal committee matters.

Macron stressed out that France saw a "red line" in Syria in terms of the use of chemical weapons.
