After speaking with Vladimir Putin during a lengthy phone conversation Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron has warned that "the worst is yet to come" from Russia.

Macron spoke with Putin about Russia's invasion of Ukraine but said the call left him convinced that the war is going to get far worse.

Following the 90-minute phone conversation, which Putin initiated, a senior Élysée Palace official told reporters that a diplomatic breakthrough is nowhere in sight.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine last week, the two leaders have held three phone conversations regarding the crisis.

However, Macron is now warning that Putin has no intention of backing down and only plans to ramp up attacks against Ukraine.

"Without making a prediction, we should expect the worst is yet to come," the French official said.

"The (French) president said so yesterday as well," the official added, CNN reported.

"There is nothing in what Putin said today that should reassure us."

The French official also revealed that Putin told Macron he plans to "continue military interventions and to go all the way" — meaning Putin wants to take over Ukraine.

"Our analysis of the military operations is that the Russian ambitions are to take control of all of Ukraine," the French official said.

Macron warned Putin against continuing military operations, reportedly telling his Russian counterpart that Russia "will pay dearly because it will end up as an isolated country, weakened and under sanctions for a very long time."

Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti reported on the call by saying that "the special military operation" — the propaganda phrase Russian officials are using to refer to their illegal invasion of Ukraine — "will be fulfilled in any case."

The outlet also warned that "attempts to gain time by dragging negotiations will only lead to additional requirements for Kyiv," the Washington Post reported.

Putin's threats to intensify his war come after Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned on Wednesday that a third world war would involve nuclear weapons.

The threat was particularly jarring because Putin placed Russia's nuclear forces on high alert last week.

Russia's plans could also involve attacking other countries in eastern Europe, thus provoking a response from western allied powers.
