Molotov - Ribbentrop revisited?
The Liberal and Democrat bloc in the EU is concerned about the rapprochement between Marine le Pen of the French National Front party and Vladimir Putin in Russia. It is reported that le Pen's party has obtained loans worth €9 million from a Russian-owned bank and le Pen regularly meets members of the Russian government. This all should be no surprise to us who see little distinction between autocracy of the "right" or of the "left".
