Prime Minister of France Élisabeth Borne suggested that the members of the newly elected National Assembly should organize a debate on the war in Ukraine and create a parliamentary committee for relations on this issue.

“It is important for the national representation to have all the information and be able to discuss this important topic,” said the prime minister, Le Monde reports.

French Defense Minister Sébastien Lecornu, Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna, and Chief of Defense Thierry Burckhardt are to take part in the debate.

According to Borne, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24 entailed “concrete consequences for our fellow citizens which, in particular, are linked to Russian retaliatory measures and, therefore, consequences for the supply of energy and raw materials.”

The Prime Minister also called on lawmakers to pay tribute to the Ukrainians whose courage and determination she highly appreciated. The MPs stood up and gave a standing ovation.

On February 24, the Russian Federation began a new stage of the war against Ukraine – the full-scale invasion. Russian invaders shell and bomb Ukrainian cities and villages, killing the civilian population. Defense forces of Ukraine are resisting Russian troops.

The world community has imposed large-scale sanctions on Russia.
