Anti-sanctions against Russia are stupid, they affected French farmers, said the candidate in presidents of France Francois Fillon at a campaign rally in Charleville-Mezieres, noting that he wants to cancel the restrictive measures. “I want to cancel this stupid embargo against Russia, which affects primarily the French farmers,” said Fillon. After these words were followed by applause from the audience, most of whom were farmers, reports TASS.

January 22, Fillon also said that the sanctions “do not bend” the people of Russia, calling on Europe to restore relations with Moscow.

On the eve of the main rival, Fillon elections, the leader of “National front” marine Le Pen called anti-Russian sanctions “completely stupid”. In her opinion, the sanctions have created economic problems for the EU.
