France will be transferring decommissioned military equipment to Ukraine instead of simply disposing of it.

This was announced by the French Minister of the Armed Forces, Sébastien Lecornu, as reported by Var-Matin.

The journalist clarified that there is some criticism in France regarding the supply of weapons withdrawn from national stocks. The minister responded that the criticism varies.

"It comes from those who think we give too much and from those who think we give too little. We clearly see that we are talking somewhat superficially, and sometimes even politicized, because the European election campaign has begun," said the minister.

He further clarified that there is a "red line" that he will never cross, which concerns undermining the French defense system.

"As for the weapons we managed to take from our armies, for example, regarding the 'Caesar' howitzers, they certainly disrupted the training schedule of our artillerymen, particularly in Canjuers, but besides that, it never undermined our systemic artillery," he explained.
