A French TV documentary offers a unique behind-the-scene look before and after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, from the point of view of France’s diplomatic efforts around the war. It shows French President Emmanuel Macron’s activism, following him from Moscow to Kyiv, but also his top aides in action. The film notably reveals nine minutes of a phone call between Macron and Russian President Vladimir Putin four days before the war, in a rare public recording of a discussion between two world leaders. Macron tries to convince the Russian president to “calm things down” in the region. But all his suggestions reach a dead end on Putin’s side.

Federal authorities are pushing back on claims that R. Kelly was placed on suicide watch as a form of punishment last week after a judge sentenced him to 30 years behind bars for using his fame to sexually abuse young girls. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn filed court papers late Saturday saying the disgraced R&B superstar remains on suicide watch “for his own safety” following a psychological assessment. Kelly’s attorney filed a lawsuit Friday alleging prison officials placed him on suicide watch “solely for punitive purposes and because of his status as a high-profile inmate."
