French president once advocated dialogue with Russia

 but now wants NATO countries to consider all options in Ukraine

At the start of the war, Macron initially alienated his counterparts in Eastern Europe by pushing for dialogue with Putin.  

Macron shuttled between Kyiv and Moscow in an attempt to prevent the conflict, and once Russia invaded, he was regularly on the phone to Putin trying to coax him to the negotiating table.

 Macron allowed a film crew to document several of his phone calls with leaders, including one in which Putin brushes off the French leader so he can go play ice hockey.
