Quoting French President Emmanuel Macron A screenshot of BBC News is going viral on social media that due to sanctions on Russia, Europe needs to accept 60 million refugees, over the next twenty years.
Be prepared to accept 60 million refugees from Africa and the Middle East in the next 20 years ,” said French President Macron , with a viral screenshot. He warned that sanctions on Russia are leading to economic collapse in Africa , which imports large quantities of Russian wheat.
To check the viral screenshot, we searched the news on BBC ‘s website. But we did not get any such news. Apart from this, no information about this was found on the official Twitter account of BBC.
As Europeans, we are adopting new sanctions. And we will continue providing humanitarian, military and financial support to Ukraine.

To the contrary, we found a tweet by Macron . In which he talked about imposing sanctions on Russia. Moreover, he had earlier also
demanded new sanctions on Russia. Information about this has been given in the report of Al Arabiya .
Hence the viral screenshot in the name of BBC is fake. Because French President Emmanuel Macron has not made any such statement .
