French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal has not ruled out the possibility of sending troops to Ukraine, according to Ouest-France.

"We cannot agree that Russia should win this war, that an authoritarian country should take control of a democratic country by force. Because we stand behind Ukraine," he says.

Attal emphasizes that Sweden and Finland are joining NATO because they see a threat from Russia.

"We have been supporting Ukraine since day one. We will continue to support Ukrainians," the Prime Minister adds.

Macron on sending troops to Ukraine

French President Emmanuel Macron does not rule out that NATO will send its troops to help Ukraine, but there is no consensus on this issue yet.

Conference on assistance to Ukraine

On February 26, a working meeting of about 20 European leaders was held at the Elysee Palace in Paris. The conference participants discussed ways to confront Russia and possible ways to help Ukraine confront the aggressor in the context of the escalating situation at the front in recent weeks.

Earlier it was reported that the French president invited European leaders to Paris to discuss proposals to help war-torn Ukraine.

In addition, Macron said that European leaders should prepare for a possible attack by Russia in the coming years.

The other day, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Ukraine was not negotiating with its partners on the use of their armies in the war with Russia.
