Macron: France to special aid fund for Ukraine

French Presiden Emmanuel Macron announced on Friday that his country will create a special fund that will provide aid for Ukraine as it is experiencing Russia's military operation on its territory.

Speaking to reporters at the European Union's informal summit in Prague, Macron said that the fund will "allow Ukraine to buy directly from our manufacturers the equipment it needs most to support its war effort" and receive an investment of €100 million for a start. He added France will provide the conflict-struck country with more artillery tricks of the type Caesar.

Commenting on the conflict potentially evolving into a nuclear one, Macron stressed that "we all have to be very careful. Our desire is the fastest possible de-escalation."
