Europe Unites to Aid Ukraine Against Russian Aggression

French President Emmanuel Macron emphasized the vital importance of ensuring Europe's security by defeating Russia in Ukraine, echoing urgent appeals for increased military support from Kyiv.

Speaking in Paris, Macron stated that European leaders had agreed to establish a coalition aimed at providing Ukraine with medium- and long-range missiles as well as bombs. While the possibility of sending Western troops to Ukraine was discussed, Macron noted a lack of consensus on the matter but emphasized that no options should be ruled out.

Acknowledging Russia as the primary aggressor, Macron stressed that the goal was not to wage war against the Russian people but to prevent them from prevailing in the conflict. He announced plans for the coalition to supply Ukraine with the necessary weaponry for strategic strikes, although specifics regarding the timing of delivery were not provided.

Additionally, Macron hinted at the potential deployment of Western ground troops, although differences of opinion persisted among allied nations.

While some leaders, like Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, affirmed their countries' reluctance to engage militarily in Ukraine, others, including Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, emphasized the importance of collective defense against Russian aggression.

However, Russia has consistently warned that any Western troop presence in Ukraine would escalate tensions and potentially lead to direct conflict with NATO.
