“I would like to emphasize, first of all, the operational cooperation between our armies within NATO and the EU, as well as everything that Europe is doing to provide Ukraine with strategic equipment,” said Macron.

“The High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy (Borrell) is preparing proposals in this direction.”
