French Defense Minister: Neither the US nor Europe wants to fight with Russia

84

Russia is a nuclear power, so neither the US nor any European country wants a military clash with it. This statement was voiced by French Defense Minister Florence Parly.


The head of the French military department answered the questions of journalists, who were mainly interested in whether Paris was going to send its military personnel to Ukraine to fight with Russia. Parley flatly rejected such a prospect, saying that neither Europe nor the United States wants to allow a direct clash with Russia. Now all forces are thrown at ending the war through diplomacy.

We did not declare war on Russia. I don't think any European country or the US wants to go to war with Russia. Our goal is to achieve a ceasefire

- she added.

The French minister recalled that Russia is a nuclear power, NATO also has a nuclear weapon and the conflict between them can escalate into a nuclear one, and no one wants that. Parley also spoke about Ukraine, saying that it is not a member of NATO, so the obligations of the alliance do not apply to it. At the same time, France is considering the option of providing military assistance to Ukraine, in accordance with the "requests of Kyiv."

In addition, France does not exclude the provision of assistance for the evacuation of Zelensky and granting him political asylum.

The security (...) of Zelensky is central to what is happening and we are in a position to help him if necessary (...) We will take whatever measures need to be taken

- said Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

    The phrase "do not want" instead of "afraid" is a diplomatic trick! Actually, they really screwed up. They didn’t believe in Putin’s warning, they thought that these were empty show-offs, but when Putin gasped, everyone sat on the ass exactly ... they believed ... now they will think 20 times before building military plans against Russia.

        Parly is lying - the Minister of Defense of France - and does not blush!

        The NATO countries lost the anti-Russian diplomatic war on the security of Russia to Russia outright!

        And now France continues to fight with Russia for the liberation by Russia of Ukraine from the heirs of the Bandera-Nazis in Ukraine during the Second World War, but not on the forehead, but with strangers - Ukrainian-Bandera and punitive-VSU - hands!

          Let's finish with Ukraine - again recall the requirements for the security of the Russian Federation.

          Add a few more points there.
          And wait.

          Let them think what "military-technical answer" will be this time.

          Sanctions will end in Ukraine, there is nothing more to introduce

          Then more.

      Where does Ukrainian aviation take off from if all airfields are destroyed?




      .Another similar incident occurred in the suburbs of Kyiv. The downed object fell next to a private house. Initially, it was assumed that it was the Ukrainian air defense system that shot down the Russian cruise missile or drone. However, after extinguishing the fires and examining the wreckage, it turned out that it was a Su-27 fighter of the Ukrainian Air Force. At the same time, a journalist from the American television company CNN said in his report that the Ukrainian plane was shot down by the Russian military. After some time, the Ukrainian media clarified that the Ukrainian Air Force fighter was destroyed in an air duel, and not by "friendly" air defense fire of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as reported by a number of media outlets.

      Yes, if it were in NATO, no one would have twitched. NATO was created to protect the Amers and Angles, all the rest are weapons (cannon fodder) with which they want to protect their interests without getting personally involved.
      Ukraine is a food base for them and nothing more. These are scavengers, they themselves can’t do anything, either bite the weak crowd, or unleash a conflict and then eat carrion from the battlefield. They themselves are nobody! They didn’t get involved in a single war (America), but for that they involved everyone they can and they still act like that. They don’t even need Ukraine in NATO, and the torn Ukraine will be enough for them for now, and there they will still find a victim.

      Poland is ready to deliver 50 tons of strawberries in baskets to valiant Ukraine with humanitarian aid. Each basket will be carried by a Ukrainian worker, who will immediately pick up a Dyagterev machine gun and go to the front.

      Everyone is watching how the military phase will go with 404 and in what format the denazification will take place, the punishment of military offenders.

      The EU probably assumes that it will be in accordance with Euro-Western standards, i.e. scold and give candy.

      Based on the results, they will try on the situation for themselves and may draw conclusions.

      The Tribaltics are almost complete tracing paper with 404 candidates for denazification and demilitarization ...

      First, you need to finish with an illustrative example of solving the situation, then pay attention to other similar cases.

      Taiwan, although very far away, was quick to draw parallels that his case and the 404 are very close.
      But Taiwanese Chinese are oriental people, much wiser than young Europeans, especially politicians with a negative selection system.

            We do not know the plans of our leadership ...
            Alas, alas, the details that are very important are not clear, even against the background of a very important ultimate goal of this action ???

                        To quote what was predicted long ago, and what happened, a lot of mind is not needed.
                        To make forecasts that will be confirmed is already aerobatics.

                        I remember that he had statements at the turn of the century on TV, they came true about BV. And yesterday on the net, I look --- a familiar face (20 years ago), did not open

    Well, as much has already been said, do not fight the Russians, do not wake up the bear. No, everyone did not believe, now many hamstrings are shaking.

    How so?
    For so many years they crawled up to Russia, menacingly "restrained" it?
    The same Stopty Berg only the other day was fiercely rude?
    And to fight - and wet your pants?

    The security (...) of Zelensky is central to what is happening and we are in a position to help him if needed

    That's what a "necessary and important" person, both Britain and France want to intercept. Although his place at the international Nuremberg Tribunal.

    Where will he go from the encircled Kiev? If only it goes underground. All that was necessary was to stop the war in the East, to accept the Russian language as the second state language and to dispose of the national battalions. Nothing complicated. Willpower is not enough...

    [quote] Russia is a nuclear power, so neither the United States nor a single European country wants a military clash with it. This statement was made by French Defense Minister Florence Parly./quote]
    Let the Ukrainians fight for us, for our democracy and freedom. We support them morally and aboutLet's get some weapons.
    [quote] French President Emmanuel Macron said that France would provide Ukraine with military equipment worth 300 million euros. [/ quote]
    Another French minister is even ready, though only in words, to strangle Russia in his arms.
    [quote]EU sanctions will aim to "strangle" Russia's economic functioning, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.[/quote]
    Are these French, these Europeans generally adequate politicians? How to cooperate with such people?

    Parley flatly rejected such a prospect, saying that neither Europe nor the United States wants to allow a direct clash with Russia. Now all forces are thrown at ending the war through diplomacy.
    Here it is necessary to declare in hot pursuit that the supply of any weapons and military cargo in general to Ukraine will be equated with a direct attack on us.

    Both the USA and Europe are dogs that bite only on the sly. Like jackals. Cowardly "hegimon" and a bunch of courtiers, ready to fulfill any whim of the owners. Terrible company, to be honest. And I'm not talking about sanctions. I'm talking about their essence in general.
