It is noted that at a conference organized in Paris by French President Emmanuel Macron, Italy, through Deputy Foreign Minister Edmondo Cirielli, broadcast its commitment to support Ukraine.

“This support does not imply the presence of troops from European states or NATO member countries on the territory of Ukraine,” the statement reads.

Earlier, Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani said that Italy did not support sending troops to Ukraine and was not at war with Russia.

Earlier, Macron said that the leaders of Western countries had discussed the possibility of sending their troops to Ukraine. As the politician said, there is no agreement on this issue, but this option should not be ruled out as the situation develops.
