France is considering sending more Caesar weapons to Ukraine

“And theThe French President, at a press conference following the first meeting of the European Political Group in Prague, announced that we are working on several requests, with several EU member states, in particular on the new Czars.

Since the beginning of the conflict, France has supplied Ukraine with 18 155mm Tsar truck-mounted guns with a range of up to 40 km, anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles, armored vehicles, fuel and individual equipment, and about 15 TRF1 155mm guns. ..

A source close to the operation told AFP that Paris was now considering supplying Kyiv with an additional six to 12 Tsar’s arms, bound for Denmark.

France is also studying the possibility of supplying the Ukrainian government with 20 Bastion armored vehicles.

The French president said that the 27 member states of the European Union will discuss on Friday in Prague “these issues, some mechanisms.”

“We will continue to support Ukraine from a financial point of view, from a humanitarian point of view and from a military point of view,” Macron said.

According to the French president, “this assistance will continue in terms of equipment and training,” in line with what has happened in recent months.

“We continue to move forward based on the requests made and close coordination between EU members and non-EU members,” he added, referring to the UK.

Russia’s military offensive in Ukraine on February 24 has already caused more than 13 million people to flee – more than six million internally displaced and more than 7.5 million to European countries – according to the latest UN data, which classifies this refugee. The crisis is the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945).

The Russian invasion – justified by Russian President Vladimir Putin, as having to “discredit and demilitarize Ukraine” for Russia’s security – was generally condemned by the international community, which responded by sending weapons to Ukraine and imposing political and economic sanctions on Russia. .

The United Nations, as confirmed since the beginning of the war, provided 6,114 civilian deaths and 9,132 wounded, stressing that these numbers are much lower than the real numbers.
