On April 21, French President Emmanuel Macron commented on the atrocities of the Russian army in Mariupol.
"The situation in Mariupol is only getting worse. Tens of thousands of civilians are trapped. I once again call on Russia to respect international humanitarian law, allow residents to leave the city, and allow humanitarian aid to enter," the president said.
According to Politico, France is also ready to provide Ukraine with the security guarantees that Kyiv asks for in exchange for declaring the country's neutral status and refusing to join NATO. Paris supported this option of reaching peace agreements between Kyiv and Moscow on April 19 during a video conference of the leaders of the G7 countries.
In addition to France, it includes the USA, Italy, Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Japan, Poland, Romania, and the leadership of the EU and NATO.
