Macron instructed to revise the arms program of the French army because of the events in Ukraine

Recent events in Ukraine have forced the French authorities to revise the arms modernization program until 2025. The corresponding order was given by President Emmanuel Macron.

The French leader announced this while speaking in Paris at the opening of the Eurosatory 2022 showroom of military equipment of the ground forces.

“I have instructed the heads of the Ministry of the Armed Forces and the General Staff to review the law on equipping the army in the coming weeks, taking into account the current geopolitical context,” Macron said.

The President also urged citizens to understand with understanding that the country has entered a period of war economy with all the consequences. According to Macron, “the conflict in Europe” forced Paris to reconsider its spending on defense and the military industry.
