France is open to training Ukrainian fighter pilots. The training can start right away.
This was stated by French President Emmanuel Macron in an interview with French TV company TF1 on Monday, May 15, after a Sunday reception by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. His words are quoted by CNN.
"We have opened the door for fighter pilot training. Training can begin immediately," Macron said.
When asked whether France would send fighter jets to Ukraine, the French president replied that it was not about aircraft, but only missiles and training.
Emmanuel Macron noted that France would not supply Ukraine with weapons that would allow it to strike at Russian territory.
"We will not supply weapons that would allow Ukraine to reach Russian soil," he said.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, French President Emmanuel Macron said after talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Paris that the country was preparing new supplies of equipment for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. In the near future, France will equip several battalions of the Ukrainian army with dozens of armoured vehicles, including AMX-10RC light wheeled tanks. Macron said that new deliveries are being prepared "to constantly take into account the needs of Ukraine".
Earlier, Macron said that Russia has "geopolitically lost" the war against Ukraine and is now turning into a vassal state of China. Russia has also lost control in the Baltic Sea due to its aggressive actions.
