Putin allies say French troops in Ukraine will suffer Napoleon's fate

MOSCOW, 29 Feb: Allies of Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the French President that any deployment of forces in Ukraine would result in the same defeat as Napoleon’s met in their 1820 invasion of Russia.

The French President urged European countries during the conference on Monday that deploying NATO troops in Ukraine is an option.

Vyacheslav Volodin, Chairman of the Lower House of the Russian Parliament, criticized Macron and said that he was saying such things to maintain his power and that his words could start a third World War.

Volodin condemned Macron’s statement and urged him to remember the defeat of Napoleon and his 600,000 armies.

Former President and chairman of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, said that Macron is dangerously delusional and shows how amateurish Europe’s political thinking is.

Maria Zakharova, spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, said that European countries’ withdrawal from Macron’s proposal shows they know how serious the consequences could be.

Macron’s European allies also brushed his statement aside, suggesting that the move could be costly.
