French President Emmanuel Macron acknowledged on Friday that two French humanitarian workers were murdered in a Russian strike in Ukraine, calling the incident “outrageous”.

Ukrainian officials stated the two men were killed in a recent drone attack in southern Ukraine.

“Two French humanitarian workers were slain in Ukraine by Russian strikes. “A cowardly and outrageous act,” Macron stated on X (previously Twitter).

“My solidarity goes out to all the volunteers who are committed to helping people,” he said.

Foreign Minister Stephane Sejourne stated that “Russia will have to answer for its crimes.”

Ukranian officials say two French nationals were killed and three other foreigners were injured on Thursday in Beryslav, near the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson.

Ukrainian police claimed they perished as a result of a drone strike.

Beryslav, located on the Dnipro River near the battle lines, has been routinely targeted by Russian drones and artillery.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky expressed appreciation for the Frenchmen’s efforts in his war-torn country.

“Russian terror recognizes no borders or victims’ ethnicities.

“The brave French relief workers helped people, and we shall be eternally grateful for their humanity.

“My condolences go out to their loved ones,” Zelensky stated on social media.
