France and other Western countries are supplying Ukraine with various weapons, including light tanks. Such a move by them will make life more difficult for Ukrainians, a Kremlin spokesman said on Monday. News from AFP.

Asked about France’s decision to send armored vehicles to Ukraine last week, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, ‘Fundamentally, these deliveries cannot and will not change anything… (they) can only prolong the suffering of the Ukrainian people.’

French President Emmanuel Macron pledged last week to send light tanks to Kiev.

France will be the first Western country to send tanks to Ukraine if the move to supply the French-made AMX-10 RC goes ahead.

The Kremlin also said that there is communication between President Vladimir Putin and President Makhon.

Peskov said the leaders are communicating. It is very useful despite the profound differences.

After Machon committed to sending tanks to Kiev, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also faced renewed calls to send tanks to Kiev.
