French President Emmanuel Macron's statements were part of the "strategic ambiguity" but allowed Paris to be "on the right side of history."

This was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of France, Stephane Sejournay, writes France TV.

He justified the statements of French President Emmanuel Macron, but clarified that Paris has no plans to send "any combat troops" to Ukraine.

"The French will not die for Ukraine," he said.

Sejourne reminded of the "clear framework" established by France, namely: "defeat Russia without waging war with Russia", "prevent Russia from winning without waging war" with Moscow.

"The framework established by the President of the Republic, which does not exclude anything, sends a very clear signal to Russia that we will not give up the fight together with the Ukrainians," he added.

Macron's statement about sending troops to Ukraine

On February 26, during a meeting in Paris after the end of the conference on support for Ukraine, French President Emmanuel Macron did not rule out that the introduction of Western troops into Ukraine in the future is a very real scenario.

Subsequently, French Foreign Minister Stephane Sejournay clarified President Macron's words and explained that the troops of Western countries, in the event of a theoretical deployment to Ukraine, will not participate in hostilities, but may be involved in demining, cyber defense, on-site production of weapons, etc.

At the same time, later, on February 29, French President Emmanuel Macron clarified that his every word about the war in Ukraine is "considered and thought out."
