French President Emmanuel Macron has strongly condemned the recent killing of two French aid workers in Ukraine, attributing their deaths to a drone attack in the southern region. The victims, targeted near the city of Kherson in Beryslav, fell victim to what Ukrainian officials describe as a Russian strike
Expressing his outrage, Macron characterized the attack as “cowardly and outrageous,” confirming the deaths through a statement on social media platform X (formerly Twitter). The French President extended his solidarity to all volunteers involved in humanitarian efforts, emphasizing the need for accountability.
Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne echoed Macron’s sentiments, asserting that Russia must answer for its actions. Ukrainian officials reported that in addition to the fatalities, three other foreigners sustained injuries during the drone attack on Thursday.
Beryslav, situated close to the front line along the Dnipro River, has been a recurrent target for Russian drones and artillery. The incident highlights the ongoing challenges faced by cities in the region and raises concerns about the safety of humanitarian workers amid escalating tensions.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed gratitude for the French aid workers’ dedication to assisting the people in his war-torn country. Zelensky denounced the indiscriminate nature of “Russian terror,” emphasizing that it spares no boundaries or nationalities.
As the international community mourns the loss of the French aid workers, there is a growing call for a thorough investigation into the incident and for holding those responsible accountable. The tragic event underscores the complexities and risks faced by individuals engaged in humanitarian work in conflict zones.
