“Ukraine remains a sovereign state even though it was attacked,” he said, noting that a possible training mission would not violate international rules.

“We decide for ourselves which form of assistance we choose,” he added.

Background:

  • Macron previously stated that “it cannot be ruled out” that Western troops would be sent to Ukraine. He later added that his comments, which caused an uproar, had been carefully thought out.

  • These comments provoked a negative reaction from the governments of the allied states, whose leaders emphasized that they would not send troops to Ukraine.

  • While the majority of NATO member states have ruled out sending troops to Ukraine, including powerful players such as Germany, Britain and the US, Lithuania’s Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said on February 28 that he was grateful to Macron for the debates he had started.

  • Dmitry Peskov, the spokesman for the Russian President, stated that the presence of NATO troops on the territory of Ukraine would lead to direct conflict between the Alliance and the Russian Federation.
