Both Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin, who Macron saw on Monday, said they remained committed to the 2015 Minsk peace agreements on the country's separatist conflicts, the French leader said.
"We now have the possibility to make these negotiations move forward," Macron said.
And on tensions between Russia and the West over Moscow's military build-up on Ukraine's borders, Macron said: "I believe for my part that there are concrete, practical solutions that will allow us to move forward."
He said nobody was "naive" enough to believe that the tensions were not linked to the Russian deployments, calling them "unprecedented".
"We cannot underestimate the moment of tension that we are living through," Macron said.
"We cannot resolve this crisis in a few hours of talks," he said. "It will be the day and the weeks and the months to come that will allow us to progress."
