French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that Ukraine’s long-awaited counter-offensive against invading Russian forces will be underway for weeks or even months.

“The Ukrainian counter-offensive started several days ago,” Macron said, speaking alongside German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Polish President Andrzej Duda at the Elysee Palace.

“It will be deployed over several weeks or even months,” he added.

“We want it to be as successful as possible so that we can then start a negotiation phase in good conditions.”
