French President Emmanuel Macron on Monday said he is not ruling out the deployment of French ground troops in Ukraine.

Macron said nothing is off the table in order to ensure that Russia does not win its war against Ukraine, after the conclusion of a Ukraine aid conference in Paris on Monday.

The meeting, which was organized at short notice, featured top representatives from many of Kiev’s key European backers, including German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and British Foreign Secretary David Cameron.

There was no consensus on the use of ground troops at the meeting of over 20 heads of state and prime ministers, but nothing could be ruled out in terms of future dynamics, Macron said.

Before his departure for the Paris meeting, Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico warned of a “dangerous escalation of tensions” with Russia. Individual countries, which he did not wish to name, were apparently prepared to send their own soldiers directly to Ukraine, he said.

However, this would not persuade Russia to give in, but would certainly increase the risk of the conflict escalating, he warned.

After the conference, Macron said in response to the question of a possible deployment of troops by Poland that each country could decide independently and sovereignly on the deployment of ground troops.
