France began to threaten Russia for sending Russian PMCs to Mali

The French Foreign Ministry began to threaten Russia with serious consequences if Russian PMCs were sent to Mali.

Against the background of a meeting of talks between the heads of the foreign ministries of France and Russia, the French Foreign Ministry unexpectedly made threats against Russia, announcing very serious consequences for Moscow if Russian mercenaries were sent to Mali. This happened against the backdrop of how the authorities of the African state announced that they want to turn to the Russian side and hire about a thousand PMC members. Because of this, France, Germany and Estonia announced that they would immediately withdraw their forces from Mali, fearing serious clashes with Russian PMCs.

“The French Foreign Ministry has promised Russia serious consequences in the event of the arrival of Wagner PMC in Mali. This was stated by French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian at a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. As for Mali, the minister warned his Russian counterpart about the serious consequences of Wagner's interference in the country's affairs. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, in turn, warned Mali about the possible consequences of cooperation between the African authorities and PMC Wagner. Borrell said that the possible involvement of a private military company in the country's affairs will have "immediate consequences" for cooperation between the EU and the transitional government of Mali.

Despite the fact that the Russian side denies at all holding any negotiations with Mali on the deployment of Russian mercenaries, the West is very afraid of Russian PMCs, realizing that the presence of the latter in Mali will seriously undermine Europe's position in the African region.

And then I wonder why Putin and Shoigu walk completely pale? It turns out from the fright of France.
