“European sanctions, a blockade or even failures in the supply of “Mistral” Russia is not only contrary to the interests of France, but also violates our centuries-old tradition of power, which are not equal to others,” said Le Pen, adding that relations between Russia and France are important in a multipolar world and necessary for the resolution of international crises.
