France is working hard with its European partners and the United States to find ways to de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said, Reuters reported.

"The Ukraine situation is very tense but we are taking all the necessary initiatives to trigger a de-escalation process," Le Drian told the French Senate.

He said France stands in solidarity with Eastern European countries that may be more directly affected by the current situation. "I will travel with my German counterpart (Annalena Baerbock) to Kyiv in a few days and again to Romania to assure our Romanian colleagues of our solidarity," he added.

Romania, a member of NATO and the European Union, shares a 600-kilometer border with Ukraine and is preparing for a possible influx of Ukrainian refugees in the event of a Russian invasion.

NATO has a multinational force of up to 4,000 troops in Romania. France has also offered to send more troops there if necessary.
