Emmanuel Macron has called on Ukraine’s allies to stand firm against Vladimir Putin’s “blackmail” of nuclear retaliation
Speaking to BFM television following his return from the UN general assembly in New York, Qazet.az reports according to Macron. He said:
Our task is to hold our line, that is to say, help Ukraine as we are doing, to protect its territory and never to attack Russia.
Russia is “very clearly under pressure” and has decided to “take a step toward escalation” but “we must never get carried away”, Macron added.
