“Vladimir Putin wants to bypass the European Union … He wants to weaken the growing cohesion of the EU. It is impossible to imagine the security of the EU without the Europeans,” said Jean-Yves Le Drian.

Also, at present, the French Foreign Minister noted, Paris does not see the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Ukrainian border, although Putin assured that this would happen.

Le Drian also said that any further military invasion of Ukraine by Russia would lead to “serious strategic consequences.” In particular, he named the revision of the Nord Stream 2 agreements as one of the options.

  1. France is a key putler enabler country. Its politicians, including Macron, are kremlin grovellers.
    Putinazi wives love to shop on the Champs Elysees and bring their booty to their husbands’ holiday villas in Cannes.

    The EU’s support of Ukraine has been lackluster at best. Only a handful of EU countries can be considered true friends of Ukraine. It really makes no difference if the EU is present in any talks. Most of those talks have been full of empty promises and downright harmful for the country.
