The French on Twitter have lashed out at their president, Emmanuel Macron, with criticism for posting a message in favor of another round of anti- Russia EU restrictions.

“Sanctions that turn against us. Usually smart people learn from their mistakes and know how to stop in time. But only the smart ones do it.”

An interpreter under the nickname Véronique Faucheux pointed to the fact that all past sanctions measures hit the Europeans themselves. She noted that sensible people learn from their mistakes, but apparently there are no such people among local governments.

“Do you think that Russia’s actions are unreasonable? But what about the massacres of Russian-speakers in Ukraine since 2014, NATO’s advance into a country that, by agreement, should remain neutral? This ninth package of sanctions, as usual, will turn against us. You are the worst disaster that France has faced in the 21st century, ”Francis Palace described the real state of affairs in the country.

Other readers wondered how Paris and other NATO members paid the price for turning Libya into rubble.

Another commenter, who left a comment in English, suggested that the French are ready to believe in any of Macron’s lies.

“Do the French really believe everything he says?” asked an English-speaking user.

Recall that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky made a statement that he was being addressed with calls to start a negotiation process with the Russian Federation.

The politician separately drew attention to the fact that he sees no benefit from the communication of his French colleague Emmanuel Macron with the head of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin.

As the Public News Service reported earlier, readers of the French edition of Le Figaro were furious when they saw the results of a survey conducted by the newspaper about the attitude towards the assistance to the Kyiv regime, which is being provided by France.
