The President of Ukraine noted that he appreciates the support of France and wished his colleague success in his work for the good of the country. Since the beginning of the military operation, the French leader has communicated with Volodymyr Zelensky and Vladimir Putin more often than others

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky congratulated his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on his re-election for a second term, calling him a “true friend”. He published his congratulations in Ukrainian and French on Twitter.

“I appreciate the support of France and I am convinced that we are marching together towards new common victories! To a strong and united Europe!»— wrote Zelensky.

The Ukrainian leader wished Macron success in his work for the benefit of the French.

Macron, after counting 97% of the votes, wins with a score of 57.49%. His rival, the leader of the “National Association” (former name «National Front») Marine Le Pen is gaining 42.51%. She admitted defeat in the elections, while calling her results a “resounding victory.”

In addition to Zelensky, the French leader was congratulated on his re-election by German and Austrian Chancellors Olaf Scholz and Karl Nehammer, British and Italian Prime Ministers Boris Johnson and Mario Draghi, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, European Council President Charles Michel and others.< /p>

Macron, speaking to supporters on the Champ de Mars, vowed to be “president for all.” “From now on, I am not a candidate of one camp, but a president for all,” — he said, addressing those who did not vote for him.

The first round of elections in France took place on April 10th. Then the current head of state was supported by 27.84% of voters, and Le Pen— 23.15%.

Macron became the first French president since 2002 to be re-elected. The last French leader to succeed was Jacques Chirac (in office from 1995-2007).

In early April, Macron expressed France's readiness to act as a guarantor of security for Ukraine after the cessation of hostilities. Kyiv seeks guarantees in exchange for the neutral status of the country. At the same time, since the beginning of Russia's military operation, the French president has communicated with Zelensky and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin more often than other leaders.
