French President Emmanuel Macron’s statements about the possibility of sending European troops to Ukraine are dangerous, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, APA reports citing TASS.

"As for Macron’s statements, it’s something new, which is far more dangerous," Peskov told Channel One television. "On the one hand, our Western partners are predictable but, on the other, unfortunately, they are beginning to discuss issues, such as the direct deployment of troops to Ukraine, which could cause irreparable damage to security and stability on the continent, leading to irreversible consequences," he added.

Peskov pointed out that the very fact that politicians in the West were discussing the issue "certainly makes it clear that the current generation of European politicians probably neither have a proper understanding of the word ‘security’ nor have a proper instinct of self-preservation." "This is fraught with unpredictability and absurd actions. It definitely requires that we remain alert," the Kremlin spokesman concluded.
