French President Macron: Russian Invasion of Ukraine Is ‘Post Covid-19 Consequence’

‘This is a strategy of hegemony in the region’

EXCERPT:

MACRON: “A few months ago, Vladimir Putin conveys a message, I was addressed by NATO, they triggered the situation and I just reacted. Now, it’s clear for everybody that the leader who decided to go to war, the leader who decided to escalate, is President Putin. And I have no rational explanation. I think this is a series of resentments. This a strategy of hegemony in the region. And I would say this is a post Covid-19 consequence, isolation.”

TAPPER: “Because he’s been so isolated?”

MACRON: “I think so. I think so.”
