(MENAFN) French Leader Emmanuel Macron did not stand with the suggestion of Ukrainian Leader Volodymyr Zelensky to call Russia a “sponsor of terrorism,” clarifying that Paris is not in need of any “definitions” to sanction Moscow or convict its alleged “war crimes.”
On Monday, Zelensky said that “the Russian state had become the largest terrorist organization in the world.” “And this must be a legal fact,” he also shared on Telegram.
Remarking on Zelensky’s declaration in a press conference on Tuesday, Macron announced that his nation does not follow such “methodology” and has been steady in its approach to Russian “war crimes.”
Mentioning the alleged assassination of civilians in the city of Bucha by Russian troops (something that Moscow vehemently rejects), Macron said that “these are war crimes.”
Underlining that Paris convicts them and stands with probes that will eventually bring people in charge for the murders to “Ukrainian and international justice.”
