War in Ukraine: Why is Macron’s call to “not humiliate Russia” making so many waves? – South West

Enough to throw a new chill between Paris and kyiv while Emmanuel Macron, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU until July 1, is under pressure from Ukraine, which has been waiting for his visit since the start of the Russian offensive on February 24. The reactions are also strong in the countries of Eastern Europe which feel the most threatened by their powerful Russian neighbor. On the long term “The French president is still looking for ways to spare the war criminal Putin from humiliation. What would he say to that little girl in Ukraine? asks the chairman of the Estonian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Marko Mihkelson, on his Facebook page, above a photo showing a child with a leg amputated on her hospital bed. The head of Latvian diplomacy, Edgars Rinkevics, for his part was ironic about the dialogue that Emmanuel Macron continues to have with the master of the Kremlin by quoting, on Twitter, a Russian love song from the Soviet era (“ I may have forgotten my pride. How much I want to hear the voice…”) “Putin will only negotiate when his army can no longer advance, humiliated or not. Macron should focus on that,” also reacted, scathingly, Barack Obama’s ex-ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, now a professor at Stanford University. Emmanuel Macron places himself on his side in the long term, when “peace will return” and when “new balances of security” will have to be built in Europe. It will then be necessary to “never give in to the temptation of humiliation or the spirit of revenge”, he said on May 9 in Strasbourg. “Way of exit” The Head of State then alludes to the “diktat” imposed in 1919 by the winners of the First World War on Germany, with heavy territorial losses and reparations, which will lead to a new world war in 1939 -1945. “We must not humiliate Russia so that the day the fighting stops, we can build a way out through diplomatic channels,” he repeated on Saturday in an interview with several regional dailies. Behind this debate is also that on the conditions of the ceasefire, and potential concessions to Russia. Should we give unconditional support to Ukraine until it obtains a total victory, as suggested by Americans and Eastern Europeans? At the risk that Russia will retaliate against the West, including with nuclear weapons, are others worried? If, on the other hand, the conflict freezes in the Donbass, “at some point, exhausted by the war effort, the two parties could agree on a ceasefire, without really ending the conflict”, observes Marie Dumoulin, expert at the European Council on International Relations (ECFR) in an analysis note. On the same subject Interview with Emmanuel Macron: “The time of crises will last” War in Ukraine, purchasing power, Damien Abad affair, incidents at the Stade de France, ecological shift that is long overdue… Questioned this Friday, June 3 by several regional dailies, Emmanuel Macron brushed aside the issues of concern at the start of his second term What peace? But many fear the precedent of 2014, when the West let Russia annex Crimea without firing a shot, and the Minsk agreements in 2015 never succeeded in ending the conflict with the pro-Russians in eastern Ukraine. Paris and Berlin were then on the move. Seven years later, Emmanuel Macron still claims a “role of mediating power” for France, also denouncing a “historical and fundamental error” by Vladimir Putin. But for what peace? This will be done under the “conditions” defined by Ukraine, insists the head of state, without necessarily reassuring those in the East who suspect him of wanting to make concessions to Moscow.
