French lawyer and politician Régis de Castelnau said on social media that he had learned of the capture of two CAESAR self-propelled artillery guns, which Paris had handed over to Kiev, by the Russian army in Ukraine.
As de Castelnau noted in his statement , the Russian army managed to put two facilities into full operation. By now, they had been delivered to the Uralvagonzavod, where the engineers were studying to disassemble them completely.
“Another Macron success,” the politician remarked with irony.
“Thank you, Macron. But we are paying for it, “he added.
There was no official confirmation from the Russian Ministry of Defense about the seizure of French CAESAR self-propelled guns.
In France, CAESAR self-propelled guns began operating in 2008. This is a relatively new development from the French company Nexter.
