France will deploy troops to Ukraine’s front line to fight Putin’s troops: President Emmanuel Macron

French President Macron has warned he may send troops to Ukraine’s frontline if Putin launches another gruelling march on Kyiv.

He dramatically claimed there should be “no more red lines” for France’s involvement – just days after Putin’s army chief warned WW3 is inching ever closer.

In a private meeting with opposition leaders at the Elysee Palace, Macron laid out the grounds for stepping into a war which has now raged on for two years.

He showed maps to senior members of the French government which included hotspots where Russia could advance on Odesa or Kyiv, according to French outlet L’Independant.

And the president, whose army forms part of Nato’s global force, said such a move from Russia could spark French intervention.

Macron’s strong comments come after he claimed days ago that Nato and EU nations could soon deploy troops to the frontline.

That speech sparked a furious response from the Kremlin, prompting Putin to wheel out his army chief who delivered a disturbing warning.

Colonel-General Vladimir Zarudnitsky said the brutal war in Ukraine could soon spill over into Europe and ignite the terrifying global conflict experts have warned about.

He said: “The possibility of an escalation of the conflict in Ukraine – from the expansion of participants in ‘proxy forces’ used for military confrontation with Russia to a large-scale war in Europe – cannot be ruled out.

“The main source of military threats to our state is the anti-Russian policy of the United States and its allies, who are conducting a new type of hybrid warfare in order to weaken Russia in every possible way, limit its sovereignty and destroy its territorial integrity.

“The likelihood of our state being purposefully drawn into new military conflicts is significantly increasing.”

Plenty of European countries have ruled out the near possibility of sending their own troops to Ukraine and French opposition leaders expressed concerns at Macron’s dramatic statements.

One party chief who was in the room with him yesterday said: “I arrived worried, and I left even more worried.”

Marine Tondelier, leader of France’s Green Party, said Putin “obviously has no limits” but that it was “extremely worrying” to see Macron saying France has “no limits” either.

The international community has been closely watching Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine with fears that other countries could be dragged in if he pushes further into the West.

And a concerning military report leaked in January detailed the Russian tyran’s possible “path to conflict” to dominate much of Europe.

The hypothetical ten point plan would have been set into motion last month and if all goes the Kremlin’s way it would end up with a full scale global war as soon as 2025.

The final step could see 500,000 Russian and Nato troops facing off with each other at the Suwalki Gap – bringing the world to the edge of World War Three.
