Macron comment sparks division in Ukraine war

by ian

French President Emmanuel Macron has the world talking after yesterday suggesting that Western allies of Ukraine should consider sending troops to fight in the war.

The comments were met with contrasting responses. Several NATO and EU members agreed with Macron’s comments. But the US and UK both stated that they had no such plans to send troops to Ukraine. Close allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin sharply criticized the comment, warning Macron against such actions.

Kremlin Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said the response of many Western leaders denouncing Macron’s suggestion showed, “they understand the danger.”
