The NATO contingent, and in particular the French soldiers deployed in Romania, as part of the strengthening of the eastern flank, said that the conditions of their service and detention are «unworthy», the Le Figaro reports, citing deputies from the French party La France Insoumise, Bastien Lachaud and Aurélien Saintoul.
Politicians report that French soldiers are «cold and with empty stomachs»: humblest meal, and there is no heating in the tents where they live, there are bed bugs in the beds, and other problems, including with sanitary conditions.
The deputies emphasize that more than eight months have passed since the deployment of soldiers in Romania. Parliamentarians do not understand how NATO can resist Russia and «send signals» if the alliance’s military personnel on the eastern flank are not provided with even basic living conditions.
Politicians said that the issue would be discussed by National Assembly of France (lower house of parliament), as soldiers should not be so treated.
