Macron: Peace will not be achieved in Ukraine by humiliating Russia

The French president stresses that "the European Union is not at war with the Russian side," and stresses that "peace cannot be achieved in Ukraine through the humiliation of Russia."

"The European Union is not at war with Russia," French President Emmanuel Macron said in a speech to the European Parliament in the French city of Strasbourg, on the occasion of Europe's Day.

Macron added during his speech that "the process of Ukraine's admission to the European Union may take years or decades."

He also noted that "the Europeans are working to preserve Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity for the return of peace," saying that "it is up to Ukraine alone to determine the terms of negotiations with the Russian side."

"Peace cannot be achieved in Ukraine by humiliating Russia," Macron said.

"The goal, in the face of Russia's unilateral decision to attack the Ukrainian people, is to end this war as quickly as possible and do everything so that Ukraine can regain control of it," he stressed.

A few days ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin had a phone call with Macron, in which he referred to "the European Union's disregard for the war crimes committed by the Ukrainian forces," while Macron expressed to Putin his "concern about the problem of ensuring global food security, which is the cause of Western sanctions."

Macron also pledged, earlier, during a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, to strengthen military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine, in light of the continuation of the Russian military operation in Ukraine.
