Between Trump and Putin: Macron solves, to be on friendly terms with Russia or not - RIA Novosti, 9/4/2018


President of France Emmanuel Macron
MOSCOW, 4 Sep — RIA Novosti, Igor Gashkov. The cold snap between the USA and the EU affects the relations of Russia and France. Emmanuel Macron looks for ways of rapprochement with Moscow, but acts still inconsistently: calls for strategic partnership, claims that the Kremlin wants to destroy the European Union. © RIA Novosti / Alexey Vitvitsky to Pass into an image bank "Traitor Macron" has started talking quotes from Putinavystupaya on September 2 on air of the Swedish television, the president of France called the Russian leader the interlocutor, important for himself, however has placed emphasis not on it. "I respect Vladimir Putin. And I — one of those who considers that we have to approach in a new way security concerns with Russia discussions are necessary for us. But Putin's dream — to dismantle the EU" — he has said in an interview to the Agenda program. A week ago Macron saw other prospects in the Russian-French relations. At a meeting with ambassadors the president has called the EU for "strategic partnership" with Russia. "This is not about accession, but <…> it is necessary to fasten Moscow to Europe as history of Russia, as well as Turkey, is closely connected with history of Europe. And we need to create together the future" — Macron has explained. Several days later, during the visit to Denmark, the French leader has let know that he sees one of alternatives to Washington in Moscow: "The European Union can't subcontract the safety to the USA more. Ourselves should assume responsibility to guarantee sovereignty". Also I have suggested to start "exhaustive discussion" of this subject "with all partners of the EU, so, and with Russia too". On this background mass media have reported the invitation which Macron had sent the Russian leader — to visit France in day of century of the end of World War I, on November 11, 2018 RIA Novosti / Irina Kalashnikova my thought is too difficult to Pass into an image bank "": Macron offends the French to a nadmennostyyu of the relations of the Kremlin with Macron's team there was a low start. Assistants to future president of France have accused the "Russian hackers" in computer hacking belonging to the movement of makronist "The republic, forward of the first half of the 2017th!". It has become clear later that cyber attacks were carried out generally from the territory of Ukraine, and the correspondence which is laid out in Network before elections didn't contain any compromising evidence. However "the deposit remained" therefore after the first personal meeting with Putin in May of the 2017th Macron has said that he brought up a question of "the Russian intervention" in the French elections and has shown discontent. Nevertheless Paris has quickly forgotten about "a virtual hand" of Moscow. And I have even changed approach to the Syrian crisis: Bashar al-Assad's leaving has stopped being for Macron a necessary condition of peaceful settlement. Between the Kremlin and the Élysée Palace the general pragmatical agenda was designated. This year the political environment has a little more pushed Paris towards Moscow. Because of the American duties on steel and aluminum between the EU and Washington trade war ran high. Leaders of France and Germany have tried to improve the relations with the Kremlin. In May Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron have visited
