Marine Le Pen, president of the National Front, a national-conservative political party in France, said the European Union (EU) sanctions on Russia are stupid.
“I am in favor of a multipolar world,” Le Pen, who holds extreme right-wing views, told Adevărul (The Truth) Romanian daily newspaper.
She noted that the EU needs to normalize relations with Moscow.
“The word is not about subjection, but relations of equality and respect,” Le Pen added.
In addition, she accused the EU of running a policy of depriving the member states of their identity. As per the French politician, EU “blackmails” national states by threatening to withhold funding, if they adopt decisions that are inconsistent with the EU official position.
