French President Emmanuel Macron is known for emphasizing that Europe must have more concrete and different reactions regarding the war in Ukraine. This is one reason why he has many supporters in Ukraine who respect his words and actions. Once again, Macron, 46, reiterated this stance. The president believes that Europe acts cowardly at moments when it should have more concrete reactions and show solidarity.

After his statements, some individuals criticized the idea of sending troops to Ukraine, considering it senseless and unfounded. France's allied countries considered his remarks meaningless, emphasizing their reluctance to send troops due to caution and fear of potential consequences. Macron emphasized once more that Europe must not exhibit such reactions when it is crucial to stand up against Russia and its forces.

Emmanuel Macron, frustrated with the behavior of European countries, calls for a reaction

"We are surely approaching a moment for Europe where we need not to be cowards. Europe has been cut in half; we must say it correctly, cowardice and the will of one part of Europe not to see the difficulties of others have handed the fate of Europe over to totalitarianism," Macron said during his visit to the Czech Republic, as quoted by lemonde.fr

Macron believes that this is also a war for other countries. The French president fears that if this war continues, the Russians could achieve their goal. He calls for a strategic reaction and has no intention of abandoning his views in the future.

"Is this or is it not our war? Can we look away in the belief that we can let things run their course? I don't believe so, and therefore I called for a strategic surge, and I fully stand behind that."-Macron concluded. 

Macron needs to receive support from leaders of other countries. However, such support is currently lacking, which is why Ukrainians cannot be happy. Many are aware of why no one wants to react concretely and send troops. A third world war is something that absolutely no one desires.
