PARIS (Reuters) – France’s President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday there was no consensus on sending troops to Ukraine, but the subject could not be ruled out.

“There is no consensus at this stage… to send troops on the ground,” Macron said after hosting some 20 countries allied to Ukraine.

“Nothing should be excluded. We will do everything that we must so that Russia does not win.”
