 Macron shares most adequate view of Ukraine, - Dzhemilev

Leader of the Crimean Tatar people, Member of the Ukrainian parliament Mustafa Dzhemilev believes that Ukraine-related policy of French centrist presidential candidate Emanuel Macron will be "most adequate" in case if he secures victory in the race.

Dzhemilev said in a comment to Krym.Realii April 24, Censor.NET reports.

"Of all the candidates, Macron shares the most adequate view of Ukraine. I think that everyone who have lost in the first round will unite and give their support to Macron. Le Pen seems to have no prospects. I hope so," Dzhemilev said.

Earlier, ex-Foreign Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Ohryzko expressed his opinion that if Macron wins the presidential seat, France would continue condemning Russia for the annexation of Crimea.
