Russia – France’s Ambassador to Russia summoned (May 6, 2024)


France’s ambassador to Russia was summoned on May 6 by the Russian Federation’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

France notes that diplomatic channels have once again been hijacked in order to manipulate information and engage in intimidation.

The Russian Ministry once again reversed responsibilities, accusing Western countries of threatening Russia, although it is Russia that has been waging a war of aggression in Ukraine for more than two years in contempt of international law and pursuing aggressive maneuvers aimed at destabilizing European countries through cyberattacks and hybrid actions.

France will continue to support Ukraine in the long term as it defends its sovereignty and territorial integrity against Russian aggression.
