In France, the president of Ukraine was called "a comedian who ignores the Minsk agreements"
French citizens, despite a lack of awareness, are very keenly interested in Ukrainian affairs and events in Donbass, discussing them in social networks and commenting on publications in the press. Therefore, it is not surprising that in France the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskiy was called "a comedian who ignores the Minsk agreements."
In particular, this point of view is popular among the readers of the famous French newspaper Le Figaro.
Such statements were a reaction to accusations by the Kiev authorities of Russia of increasing military assistance to the Donetsk and Luhansk Republics. This happened after the Russians refused to extend the term of office of the OSCE observers who were at the Russian checkpoints Donetsk and Gukovo on the border with the LPR. As soon as Moscow’s representative to the OSCE, Alexander Lukashevich, announced that Russia saw no reason to extend the mandate of the organization’s representatives at these two border points, Kiev accused Russia of sabotaging the Minsk agreements.
As it turned out, ordinary Frenchmen do not share this position, calling Ukraine the main violator. They believe that the Russian Federation has every right to provide military assistance to the LDNR, because the Ukrainian president has agreed on supplies weapons and technology from the United States, and this was done absolutely openly. Observing his behavior in Washington, one of the readers noted that the US press correctly confused the names Zelensky and Lewinsky, hinting at the notorious White House intern who was involved in the scandal with President Bill Clinton.
And while the situation in Donbass is being discussed at various levels, about 13 thousand people have died there in nearly eight years of war, many of whom were civilians who ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time.
