She also noted that in case of victory will restore normal relations between France and Russia, in particular, will act for the abolition of anti-Russian sanctions. The Ukrainian foreign Ministry has expressed indignation at the statement of marine Le Pen.

“This wise and far-sighted position, leading policy worthy of a great country. Unlike many of their European colleagues, to carry out orders from Washington and Brussels or blinded by Russophobia, MS Le Pen to objectively assess reality and puts in the forefront, first and foremost, the interests of France. She also, apparently, knows the history of Russia and Crimea. Invite marine Le Pen to visit our Peninsula,” — wrote on his page in Facebook Feldman.
