Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova made fun of French President Emmanuel Macron and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after they were captured hugging each other.

"Now I understand why Putin has such a long table," she wrote on her Facebook Page.

Tweets on social media started to spread to take a dig at Macron and Zelenskyy.

Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, and Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi visited Kyiv on Thursday.

Macron affirmed that France, Germany, Italy, and Romania are all in favor of Ukraine receiving “immediate” official candidate status to join the EU.

“All four of us support the status of immediate candidate for accession,” he said at a joint press conference in the Ukrainian capital.

"Today, they must win this war. France clearly supports Ukraine so that it wins," Macron stated while announcing  France would be sending six more long-range Caesar howitzers to Ukraine to counter Russia.

On 24 February, Zakharova noted that Russia’s special operation in Ukraine is not the beginning of a war, adding that it is called to prevent a global confrontation and put an end to hostilities in Donbass.

“This is not a beginning of war. It prevents a global military confrontation and puts an end to the war that has been underway [in Donbass],” the spokeswoman said.

“The war was waged on different fronts: we experienced the pressure of sanctions and on the information front we saw some monstrous fakes against us one cannot read about in any textbook,” Zakharova added. “Also, there was a psychological war – attempts were made to set our people and our elite against each other, and so on.”
