French soldiers will not be sent to fight in Ukraine in the foreseeable future, French President Emmanuel Macron has said.

"I don't think the war will come to our territory, I want to assure you. We will not engage in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine," AFP quoted him as saying on the DIY podcast.

The French president said he understood the concerns of those who "fear that the conflict could spread to France".

After a conference on Ukraine in Paris on February 26, French President Emmanuel Macron said participants were considering sending ground troops to Ukraine. Although no consensus was reached, it left the door open for such a scenario in the future. He later reiterated that the issue of sending troops to Ukraine could be raised again if Kiev requested it in case "Russian forces break through the front line", and Le Monde later reported that Macron was trying to form an EU coalition to to send instructors to Ukraine.
