Macron Does Not Rule Out Deploying Troops to Ukraine as He Rallies Support for Kyiv

HeadlineFeb 27, 2024

French President Emmanuel Macron is leading a European effort to send more arms to Ukraine. These will include more middle- and long-range missiles. Macron also did not rule out eventually sending French or other Western troops to Ukraine. He spoke Monday at a Paris conference of 20 European leaders.

President Emmanuel Macron: “Everything was discussed in a free and direct manner tonight. There was no consensus today to send troops onto the ground in a manner that’s official, assumed and endorsed. But on the dynamic, nothing should be excluded. We will do everything so that Russia cannot win this war.”
