There is “no question of sending combat ground troops” he indicated on BFMTV. “Between the transfer of arms as we know it today and co-belligerence, that is to say direct war with Russia, have we tried everything?” questioned Sébastien Lecornu, trying to defuse a controversy that has been growing for several days.
