Eric Ciotti strongly criticises Macron’s comments following international conference - Local MP and president of the Republican Party Eric Ciotti has heavily criticised French President Emmanuel Macron’s comments on Monday, about sending troops into Ukraine asking if the President position on the matter has been “well thought out?”. Ciotti this Tuesday morning reacting by saying that sending troops to Ukraine would have “serious consequences” adding that a “possible ground mobilisation of French troops would change the nature of the conflict”.  At the end of an international conference in support of Ukraine held in Paris on Monday, Emmanuel Macron explained that such a hypothesis should not "be excluded", nevertheless ensuring that there was no consensus on this issue between Ukraine's allies.  Meanwhile, at the opposite end of the political spectrum, far left MP Jean-Luc Mélenchon at the same time denounced “madness” adding that a “verbal escalation of a nuclear power against another major nuclear power is already an irresponsible act”.
