French presidential candidate Dupont-Aignan calls for EU alliance with Russia and lifting of sanctions
Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, the leader of the right-handed party “Get Up, France” and presidential candidate, believes that Europe needs an alliance with Russia, and France will only benefit from the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions.
“I am convinced that the future of Europe depends on a large alliance with Russia. They have raw materials, a desire to defend themselves, and in addition, they are needed in the Middle East.
And I think that France will benefit from the lifting of sanctions against the Russian Federation associated with the old history of Crimea. which does not make sense to restore reasonable diplomatic relations with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin, “DuPont-Aignan said on Europe 1.
According to him, France should “get out of these childish games in foreign policy, figuring out who are the good guys and who are bad.”
Earlier, French journalist and essayist Eric Zemmour, who may become a presidential candidate in France, advocated the lifting of Western sanctions against Russia.
The first round of the presidential elections in France will take place on April 10, the second on April 24, 2022.
