French President Emmanuel Macron mentioned some "underground Ukrainian networks" in his interview for the right-wing magazine. That was when he addressed combating the illegal migration in France. 

"I prefer the people who arrive from Guinea or Cote d'Ivoire legally (...) than the underground Bulgarian or Ukrainian networks", he said.

The audience criticized his statement, pointing out that Macron, thus, sides with the right-wing supporters, hoping to grab some votes from Marine Le Pen who he could face in the next presidential campaign in 2022.
