The time for illusions is well and truly over. The first break with French ambiguity towards Putin's Russia dates back to the speech given by Emmanuel Macron in Bratislava, in June 2023.


DECRYPTION - The increase in Russian threats and aggressiveness against Europe in general, and against France in particular, is deployed in all fields, military, informational, cyber.


“Who goes piano goes sano e goes lontano.”

This is how Emmanuel Macron’s France goes in Ukraine.

For a long time, the French president had kept only one eye open on the Russian threat, leaving the other half-closed on the political blindness that has accompanied, over the decades, the relationship between Paris and Moscow.

After the February 2022 invasion, he had hoped that his telephone conversations with Vladimir Putin could prevent and then restrain the Kremlin's imperialist impulses.

Then he wanted to believe in the possibility of a return to calm thanks to improbable negotiations.

He also urged European countries

“not to humiliate”

or

“crush”

Russia, for fear of a collapse of the regime or an untimely reaction from the master of the Kremlin.
