French Foreign Ministry Says Neither France Nor Allies Are At War With Russia Contradicting The German Foreign Minister Who Said They Were


AFP: Neither France Nor Allies At War With Russia: Foreign Ministry 

Neither France nor its allies are fighting a war against Russia, the French foreign ministry said Thursday, following a Western decision to send heavy tanks to Ukraine to repel the Russian invasion. 

"We are not at war with Russia and none of our partners are," ministry spokeswoman Anne-Claire Legendre said. 

"The delivery of military equipment... does not constitute co-belligerence." 

Legendre spoke after German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock on Wednesday said it was important for Western partners to coordinate military aid to Kyiv. 

"The crucial part is we do it together and we do not do the blame game in Europe because we are fighting a war against Russia and not against each other," she said.

WNU Editor: The German Foreign Minister said the quiet part out loud, hence the French Foreign Ministry denial. NATO is also denying that they are at war against Russia. But with the exception of the diplomats and politicians who like to muddle the language on what is war or not, I think most Europeans are now aware that their governments have escalated their involvement in the current war to a level that Russia now sees itself engaged in a hot conflict against NATO albeit through Ukraine.

You have decided to kill your neighbor. You do not have a gun.

You then told me you are going to kill your neighbor and I believe you.

I then give you a gun.

According to the article the French said.........

"This does not constitute belligerence."

Of course it does not. What fine words we use. HAHAHAHA......

But it does constitute accessory to murder does it not?

Yes, I know, the constant lament........who invaded whoo. ....

But That is not the point. The point is

are they at war or not??????... I guess it is how you look at it.

Did WNU's mother whack him over the head with an iron skillet? If she did, it would explain a lot.

Russia is not at war with anyone. So the converse would be true. No one is at war with Russia.

If the dear readers would remember (WNU will not, because his mother whacked him), Putin started a special military operation.

We have been told that special military operations are not the same thing as a war. Is Putin or WNU having a Clinton moment? Depends on what special military operation is is.

"Although Girkin, a self-described Russian nationalist, does not oppose the Ukraine war, he has grown increasingly critical of Kremlin leadership in recent months as the war stagnates. He added that, because Russia has officially classified the invasion as a "special military operation" rather than a war, leaders are limited in their disciplinary actions."

Russia is at war with somebody. FALSE

Somebody is at war with Russia? FALSE

This one won't stick, wnu

Same "logic" with Putin:

War/invasion is called "special operation"

Lets just negotiate, everyone is bored of seeing senseless death. Let these young men - on both side - live. It's an obscenity and clear sign or moral decay that this war is going on for so long.

Present your terms. Lets talk. We can always continue the mass murder after a chill break, right? ;)

the US was not at war with N. Korea in the Korean "war." It was a police action, so-called. How do you know it really was a war? If you served you were eligible for the G.I. Bill.
My grand mother told me that if some country tries to take a large part of your country by force with its military that is a war. To call it anything else is a delusion

Word games and media battles. The war is exposing a paper tiger.

Putin played word games to fool Russian voters and the not be condemned by the UN.

Since he is playing word games, we might as well.
