In France they told why the West is angry with Russians

Russia does not fit into the picture of “democratization” that the West painted in its imagination, and continues to be an independent and self-sufficient country whose evolution does not depend on the desires of Europe and the United States.




Former French diplomat who served as head of the Foreign Ministry, Hubert Vedrin, in an interview with Figaro noted that the West’s hopes for a quick "democratization" of Russia did not materialize, and this is one of the reasons Western society hates it.

Vedrin is forced to state that "the Russians remained Russian," and the West was not able to change Russia, which "is evolving on its own, in its own rhythm and in its own manner."

The ex-head of the French Foreign Ministry believes that Europe’s attitude towards Russia should be "demanding and vigilant, but not vengeful and fanatical."

The former diplomat also acknowledged that the West has been imposing its values ​​on the world for a long time and called on Paris to restore relations with Moscow.

It is pretty gratifying to know that in the West there are still people who understand that European values ​​are not a standard and may be unacceptable in other countries with varying degrees of categorization.

As for Russia, the shock of the 90s and early 2000s was enough for her to understand how the “democratization” imposed by the West could end with.

    France, too, is not loved by everyone and not everywhere ... If you lived at home and did not crawl to other countries with your principles and views, they will figure it out without you ...
    1. They would go to gay parades ...

    But what kind of "Western values" are these? Let them talk more specifically about them. Maybe it’s really worth it to adopt them ?!
    That's just such a scumbag that you should not expect anything good from them. Shit in neighboring Libya and be surprised that migrants spoiled the whole of Paris. Tolerates homosexuals? Yes, let them do what they want, why yell and hold parades about this at every corner. Eat frogs and snails from hunger and say that this is exquisite French cuisine? Duc to me Russian cuisine with borscht, pancakes, dumplings, etc. more like it (well, maybe Olivier should say “thank you” to them).
    Nah, let them keep their "values" and mutated "democracy".

    Yes, our values ​​are cooler!

    Rising prices for gasoline, food, utilities, billions of emptiness of departments and state oligarchs, large - several times% for loans to Russians than to foreigners, and friendship with the IMF councils ....

    Moreover, the President is an ardent democrat, a liberal, and Medvedev struggling all day with rising prices, and the Federal State Statistics Service stood up as an indestructible defense for the rampant growth of incomes ......

    For such successes, the insidious France does not like Russia.

        Yes, the senator is a billionaire, then leaves for the estate in France and buying houses, then he moves back.
        Glad you're worried about him.
