French President Emmanuel Macron confirmed on Monday that the European Union will continue to help Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression and that the goal remains to achieve a ceasefire as soon as possible. But, at the same time, the owner of the Champs-Elysées gave assurances to Russia that the intention was not to humiliate her or take revenge.
In a speech to the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the occasion of the closing of the Conference on the Future of Europe, Macron denounced Moscow’s “unilateral decision” to invade Ukraine. According to the French President, it is necessary that “justice speak” in the face of the “untold crimes” committed by Russian troops. He did not provide details on how these crimes will be prosecuted.
The French leader promised that the EU will participate in the restoration of Ukraine after the end of the war
Macron insisted that a truce be reached as soon as possible in order to avoid escalation and prevent the conflict from spreading to other countries on the continent. However, all assistance to Kyiv will continue to ensure that Russia does not get away with it and that Ukraine restores territorial integrity.
Looking to the future, the French leader pledged that the EU would be actively involved in the rebuilding of Ukraine, which he already considered, in fact, for its courage and the values it stands for, as a “cordial member of our Europe.” At the same time, he mentioned the need for a “new security balance” in Europe, in which Russia should participate. Macron urged “never to give in to the temptation of humiliation or the spirit of revenge.”
