Macron, Scholz, Draghi and Iohannis in Irpin

The presidents and the chancellor were horrified by what they saw

The European hearts are not adapted to witness the perversions, murders, rapes and destruction that the Russians have brought to Ukraine. Therefore, Scholz and Macron, who have been flirting with Putin to varying degrees throughout the war, were horrified by what they saw in Irpin. What Ukrainians have been living with for 112 days has finally appeared before the eyes of those who asked to save Putin's face and blocked the transfer of weapons needed by Ukraine.

"This is the stigma of barbarism," Emmanuel Macron commented on what he saw in Irpin.

The images of the Ukrainian city destroyed by the occupation slightly influenced the rhetoric of the French president: "Ukraine needs to be able to resist and win." We hope that the macron will be able to convey this idea to Olaf Scholz.

"France has been next to Ukraine since the first day of the war, we are next to the Ukrainians without ambiguity," Emmanuel Macron.

We remind you that the presidents of Italy, Romania, France and the German chancellor arrived in Kyiv to meet with Zelenskyy. And before that, they will be given a tour of the cities that were under Russian occupation.
