Opinion: Macron should be concerned saving his own face – not delegate sovereign Ukrainian territory to Russia

Interviewed by Italian TV Rai1, Zelensky confirmed that Macron has proposed for Ukraine to give up some territory to Russia in order to present a face-saving option for Putin. Zelensky said it’s out of the question. Macron is the one who needs to save his face after this” (Visegrád 24, 13.05.2022).

The newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron is sounding like a Kremlin apologist. Would have anticipated this from some of the Russian buddies in Budapest, but not from Paris. However, the war in Ukraine is only showing who is pandering to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Macron is one of them and he is willing to give up territory to appease Putin. The French President is willing to make a new Munich Agreement of 1938 to appease the Russian dictator of the day. The same way several powers within Europe defended Germany’s rights at that time to territory within Czechoslovakia. They did that to settle and give Europe peace, but we knew that wasn’t enough for Hitler. We can most likely say that giving Donbas or the two separatist regions within Ukraine to Russia will not give Europe peace in 2022. It is only postponing it and possible gives Moscow more reason to invade the whole of Ukraine, which it is currently trying to do.

That’s why Macron shouldn’t be concerned about saving the face of Putin. He should be worried about the innocent civilians, the destruction and the war-crimes happening within Ukraine. That’s would make sense, but his instead wanting to do a Neville Chamberlain move and settle grievances in regards to Putin, instead of listening to Kyiv. That is very obvious here and we all know what Hitler did to the rest of Czechoslovakia.

Also, in this manner… Macron should be worried about his own sovereign territories and integrity, as there are independence movements and resistance on the island of Corsica. That is something he has to deal with. Corsica must be listened too and there is possibly talks of some “autonomy” but we don’t know what is happening with that. Therefore, he should be concerned there and possibly not lose face over that himself.

The French President should try to talk to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He should try to understand the devastation of the war. The French President should understand the constant threat and how the Russians has violated Ukraine for years. The French President should study and understand how the Russians has breached the Budapest Memorandum and also the Minsk Agreement. Therefore, he shouldn’t pander to Putin, but listen to the needs of Ukraine.

It is really despicable of Macron as the Ukrainian are defending their rights. I wonder, if the French would give up any territories or even some of their influence in former colonies even? Isn’t just a little while ago, the French called out Bamako and their acts of ceasing relations or even military agreement with them. That is just showing the double standard of the French and old French Empire.

Macron should be concerned about France and Corsica at this point. In the mean time, he should use the strength and greatness of France to support Ukraine. Not be there as an unknown ally of Putin. That is just wrong and in the midst of war. Macron should be a brother to Zelensky and not be a buddy to Putin. Unless, he wants to be allied with dictators and support them.

We know the French supports the likes of Paul Biya, Faure Gnassingbe and others in the former West African Colonies. So, it would fit the programme of Paris. However, we would think the French had more foresight, but clearly not. Peace.
