The possible visit by French President Emmanuel Macron to Ukraine's capital Kyiv is one of "several options" that are on the table at present, although no firm decision has been taken on this yet, said government spokesperson Olivia Gregoire.

German paper Bild am Sonntag reported earlier this month that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz would travel to Kyiv on Thursday with Macron and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

Macron has sought to maintain dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin since the war began, but that stance has been criticised by some eastern and Baltic partners in Europe as they see it as undermining efforts to push Putin to the negotiating table.
