The NSDC of Ukraine secretary Oleksii Danilov said at a briefing on  results of the NSDC meeting that France and Germany are cooperating with Russia and are staying its political partners.

Oleksii Danilov also stated that the annexation of Crimea was followed by the refusal of France and Germany to provide a NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) to Ukraine and Georgia.

Danilov added that it is not sufficient just to raise concerns when one country is violating the territorial integrity of another.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky alleged the day before that France and Germany seem to be ‘in weak position’ in the context of war in Donbas.
