However, the French reacted critically to this statement by their president. They expressed their opinion in the comments, reports RIA Novosti.
According to one of the users, if Macron does not lie to the Ukrainians in the same way that he has lied to the citizens of his country for the last seven years, then Ukraine “maybe get a tire or two from these tanks.” Readers stressed that the French are suffering and Macron “keeps giving”. They also wondered what the state of France would be like after the reign of the current president.
Users asked Macron to help his country’s entrepreneurs, companies, retirees, instead of spending hundreds of millions and military equipment in Ukraine, as this is wasteful. “Let’s stop representing billionaires that we are not,” one reader noted, adding that all the money that was donated to Ukraine would be better spent on lowering fuel prices, on any energy source, on contributions, VAT rates.
Earlier, Marine Le Pen, leader of the right-wing National Rally party in the French parliament, said hundreds of companies in France were forced to suspend work due to rising electricity prices. According to her, the price explosion was due to Macron’s refusal to break with the absurd rules of the European energy market.
