War in Ukraine live: The Russian parliament has ratified the law on the annexation of the four Ukrainian regions

The Ukrainian conflict invites itself to the National Assembly

French MPs return to the Chamber today with a debate on the situation in Ukraine, which is tenser than ever after Moscow’s call for the annexation of four Ukrainian regions. This debate, organized in accordance with Article 50-1 of the Constitution, is not subject to a vote.

The President of the Assembly, Yaël Braun-Pivet, has just returned from a trip to Ukraine with several majority MPs and Socialist Vice-President Valérie Rabault to show “France’s solidarity”.

Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne is scheduled to open the discussion at 4 p.m.

At Les Républicains, the first group to speak, Michèle Tabarot will express, in French, the “refusal to recognize illegal annexations” and highlight the “changes in the President’s position that have damaged the clarity of the action”.

In the majority, the modem Frédéric Petit wants to insist on the “need to prepare French reports for the coming difficulties” and the duty to help in the reconstruction of Ukraine.

Follows Socialist Party faction leader Boris Vallaud, who is tasked with defending “the full sovereignty of Ukraine’s borders recognized in 1991”.

At Europe Ecologie-Les Verts, Aurélien Taché plans to intervene with French companies that refuse to leave Russia.

On the Communist Party side, Jean-Paul Lecoq wants to question “the inability to make peace” and “the lack of credibility of the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council”.

Seven speakers, including group leader Aurore Bergé, will speak for Renaissance, which has a maximum of fifty minutes, versus ten or fifteen for the other groups.

The National Rally wants to discuss the consequences of the sanctions against Russia. The leader of La France insoumise, Mathilde Panot, was to end the parliamentary speeches by “condemning Russian aggression” and reminding that the economic situation in France was not “due solely to the war”.

Elisabeth Borne agreed to this Ukraine debate in July. It will also take place in the Senate on October 26th.
