French President Emmanuel Macron said that the European Union would send Ukraine more military equipment to defend against Russia, including French Caesar howitzers, according to Reuters. On Oct. 1, Le Monde reported that France was preparing to deliver 6-12 Caesar howitzers to Ukraine.

Following Russia's attempt to illegally annex Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk, Donetsk, and Kherson oblasts on Sept. 30, Macron told President Volodymyr Zelensky that France would help Ukraine restore "full sovereignty and territorial integrity."

France has sent 18 Caesar howitzers to Ukraine out of 76 it has; Ukraine asked for 15 more.
