“I do not exclude anything, because we are facing someone who excludes nothing,” Macron said when asked if he stood by his comments made earlier this year, not ruling out sending of Western troops who sent a shock wave across Europe.

He stressed that if Russia were to step up its actions, it would force all European leaders to consider sending troops.

“If Russia decides to go further, we will all have to ask ourselves this question anyway” of sending troops, calling its refusal to rule out such a move a “strategic wake-up call for my counterparts,” Macron said . said.

The French president described Russia as “a regional destabilizing power” and a significant threat to European security.

He further outlined his strategic objective, saying that Russia cannot be allowed to win in Ukraine.
