“All allies adhere to the same line - we supply weapons, equipment, ammunition to help Ukrainians defend themselves on their territory, and not to attack another territory,” he said at a press conference following the G7 summit, his words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

At the same time, Macron confirmed plans to supply the Ukrainian military with six more CAESAR self-propelled guns in addition to the 12 that were delivered earlier.

In April, it became known about France's plans to send 155-mm CAESAR self-propelled artillery mounts to Ukraine.

Macron then stated that he was striving to arm Ukraine "without crossing the red line" in order "not to be a party to the conflict."

In June, the French president decided to supply the Ukrainian army with six more CAESAR installations.

The DPR noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are using French artillery with a caliber of 155 mm to shell Donetsk.

In particular, as stated in the Russian Investigative Committee, the Ukrainian military fired at a water canal in Donetsk from a CAESAR installation.

According to Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzya, the actions of the EU have reached the point where European weapons are now killing civilians in the Donbass.
