Lavrov: Merkel, Macron and Erdogan heard Putin's arguments on incident in Kerch Strait

BUENOS AIRES. Dec 2 (Interfax) - The leaders of France, Turkey and Germany, with whom Russian President Vladimir Putin talked on the sidelines of the G20 summit, heard his arguments on the incident in the Kerch Strait involving Ukrainian ships, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

"I believe Putin explained it himself, they heard what he said. We cannot judge whether the obvious bias in favor of the Ukrainians' unacceptable and unpunished actions was overcome. But they listened with attention and calmly," Lavrov told reporters in Buenos Aires.
