Washington fears possible victory for "pro-Russian" Le Pen in France

While the Pentagon was expressing a desire to see "Russia's defeat in Ukraine," an unpleasant surprise awaited Washington in the news from France. According to the latest sociological research, presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has every chance of defeating the current head of state, Emmanuel Macron. Such information greatly disturbed the White House, which is "closely watching" the election campaign of its faithful ally. About it writes the publication Politico.

According to representatives of the Washington political elites, a possible Le Pen victory would cast doubt on North Atlantic unity and destabilize the currently strong Western anti-Russian coalition. Moreover, the White House is confident that in the long run, Le Pen may cause the collapse of NATO, as the current presidential candidate sows doubts about the need for some countries to participate in the alliance.

The United States has been too concentrated on Ukraine for the past few months, so unpleasant news from the "backyard" of the coalition forced to pay attention to the long-forgotten direction of foreign policy. Perhaps Washington was still expecting a “wrong” transition of power in Germany, but not in France. So far, the opposite is happening, so there are concerns.

Marine Le Pen's Presidency Will Be America's Huge Defeat and Russia's Biggest Victory

- Politico quotes its sources in the administration.

On the whole, it must be admitted that Le Pen's victory is by no means guaranteed. However, in Washington they are reinsuring themselves and preparing a plan "B". The events in Ukraine have turned the heads of overseas strategists, because once again a very profitable “ghost” of the world war and big money, proceeds from the sale of grief and misfortune to the warring countries, is wandering in the world. The United States simply cannot afford to get a stab in the back from an ally now, which is why they are so seriously worried, in fact, from scratch.

Calling Le Pen pro-Russian is unlikely to succeed. One can draw very appropriate parallels with the US elections in 2016, when the supposedly pro-Russian Donald Trump won, after which the Russian Federation received one of the most principled opponents of Russia and personally President Vladimir Putin.

For example, the candidate from the "National Association" Le Pen repeatedly repeated at her rallies and interviews that she would maintain anti-Russian sanctions if she was elected head of state. She opposed the special operation of the Russian Federation in Ukraine, and also called for abandoning Russian energy sources. Therefore, to consider her victory a success for Russia, to put it mildly, is frivolous. However, the fact is that Washington really doesn't want to see her as president of France.

    Marine Le Pen will not be president. The president is not elected by the people, but by capital. And ordinary French people understand this, so they decided not to go to the polls, there is no sense in this. According to polls, two-thirds of the French decided not to vote.

      skept54, there were polls among Melenchon's supporters, far from everyone there will vote for Macron. Macron now has practically the highest anti-rating among all French presidents in half a century. Although there are also a lot of those who under no circumstances will vote for Le Pen. 50/50. So far, the interrogation of living French mercenaries will not show the RF Armed Forces.

    It will be cool, the far-right party is in power in France, but they are far from the second in terms of deputies, and this is the main thing

    Freemasons become "pro-Russian" when they need it for their cunning game. And as soon as they get stronger, they pour dirt on Russia. But God sees everything. Thank God!

    If Li Pen is not an Atlanticist, then if elected, she will have to be friends with Russia so that she does not speak now

    Russia has always striven to build a common European home. There is no doubt that with friendly relations between the EU and Russia, Europe today would not know the energy crisis, the economy would be much stronger and more stable, military spending would be minimal and Europe would look confidently into the future.

    But this scenario was actively prevented by the United States and England. Why is this the first and so obvious. But England was afraid that after leaving the EU it would remain on the sidelines of history, beyond the brackets of prosperity.
    Ukraine, this is the mistake of the EU leaders, perhaps the biggest mistake in the history of the union.
