Macron says it’s up to Ukrainians to decide conditions for possible end of war and “sustainable peace”

French President Emmanuel Macron said he does not believe allies should push Ukrainians into a compromise with Russia that would “not be acceptable for them.”

“We will never urge the Ukrainians to make a compromise which will not be acceptable for them,” the French president said in response to a question about a possible end to the war.

“They are so brave and they defend precisely their lives, their nation, and our principles. … If we want a sustainable peace, we have to respect the Ukrainians to decide the moment and the conditions in which they will negotiate about their territory and their future,” Macron added.
In the meantime, Macron said, “We increased our military support. We increased our economic support. We are increasing our humanitarian support.”

Additionally, US support — both financially and in providing military weapons to Ukraine — is not just important for the country under attack but also for wider Europe, Macron said.

“For the stability of our world today — because if we consider that we can abandon the country and abandon the full respect of these principles, it means that there is no possible stability in this world,” Macron said.

“I think it’s extremely important to have you so much committed,” he said.
