French presidency: Macron assured Ukraine's Zelensky of support

PARIS, October 19 ------ French President Emmanuel Macron reaffirmed his country's support for Ukraine during a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the French presidency said.

Macron's conversation with Zelensky comes amid speculation that Israel's war with Hamas may impact Western powers' support for Ukraine as it fights Russia. "He assured the Ukrainian president that the proliferation of crises would not weaken French and European support for Ukraine, which will be there for as long as it takes," said Macron's office.

Earlier this month, NATO members assured Zelensky that they would sustain military aid to Ukraine as it braces for another wartime winter, even as Western attention focuses on the fallout from Hamas' attack on Israel.
