Le Figaro reports that NATO soldiers in Romania, including those deployed by the French army to strengthen the eastern flank, complain of “unworthy” conditions in their detention and service, citing Bastien Lachaud and Aurélien Saintoul from the French party La France Insoumise.
A politician reports that French soldiers are “cold and with empty stomachs”: they are fed the humblest meal, put up in tents with no heating, have bed bugs in the beds, and have other problems such as sanitary conditions.
It has been more than eight months since soldiers were deployed in Romania, according to the deputies. NATO’s military personnel on the eastern flank are not provided with even basic living conditions, so parliamentarians are puzzled as to how NATO can resist Russia and “send signals.”
French politicians are expected to discuss the issue at the National Assembly (lower house of parliament), since soldiers should not be treated so unfairly.
