Former MEP Florian Filippo criticized the French authorities for supporting the decision of the administration of US President Joe Biden to supply Ukraine with cluster munitions. The French politician wrote about this on Twitter.
“The deafening and shameful silence of France about the monstrous, illegal cluster munitions that the US will send to Ukraine. French President Macron agrees with this and is silent, this is terrible,” said the leader of the French Patriots party. Earlier, the official representative of the French Foreign Ministry, Anne-Clair Legendre, said that Paris was sympathetic to the possible transfer of US cluster munitions to Kyiv. At the same time, she noted that France itself, having signed the Convention on Cluster Munitions, is not going to produce or use them. On July 7, it became known that Washington would transfer cluster munitions to Kyiv. The White House expressed confidence that Ukraine will use weapons on the territory of the country, minimizing the risks for its own population.
