Marine Le Pen , leader of France's far-right National Front party, has argued that Europe is responsible for the events in Ukraine.

In an interview for Germany weekly Der Spiegel, she expresses support for the federalization of Ukraine, adding that the European Union exacerbated the difficult situation by offering partnership to a country which had half of its population looking eastward.

She insists that Europe is showing Russia in an unfavorable light to please the United States, stressing that Europeans must uphold their opinions.

Marine Le Pen, as cited by The Voice of Russia, claims that Americans are seeking to expand their sphere of influence on a global scale, most of all in Europe, thereby pursuing their own interests.

The leader of the French far-right party expresses "a certain admiration" for Russian President Vladimir Putin due to his refusal to let other countries impose their decisions on him.

She states that the Russian President's first concern is Russia's interests.

"In this respect I have the same respect for Putin as for Mrs Merkel ," she declares.

She accuses Merkel of conducting a policy which is beneficial for Germany but injurious to all other countries.

Marine Le Pen claims that the German Chancellor has assumed that one can implement policies against the people, adding that this will cause the EU to explode.

She also urges Merkel to take a closer look at the damage caused by her austerity policies in Europe.

On May 25, France's far-right National Front party won the European Parliament elections in the country with a share of nearly 25%.

To Malak Petco and all with small imaginations....Marine le Pen is paid by her bosses in Moscow to say this....this is why they all met in the Crimea after the Russian annexation. They were there....all rightwing extremist Mafioso/ chronies including Le Pen to ratify the farcical referendum. The hometown of Le Pen's loyalty is Marseille....does anybody remember "The French Connection"? I am not asking people to testify , just be honest , open your eyes and realise what is happening now: a deliberate strategy of Organised Crime directed from Moscow is trying to undermine any systems of Control....something the KGB are specialists at perfecting, anywhere! Are people so gullible? It is not half the population looking eastwards!!!! Facts-check out Zhirinovsky and spot the trend: ask yourself why so much division worldwide....Control....simple divide and rule (and of course profit for the ONE %).
Putin is the Godfather of more than Russia ! and more powerful than Pablo Escobar; be objective. Mind control in a sociological sense, the west are primitive in these methods, compared to the KGB. Just look how they trained their Eurovision Ladies. Godmother of Organised Crime, sitting comfortably in Brussels, will now attempt to divide Europe with the nationality ticket without a single serious policy, just normal Zhirinovsky behaviour, left / right , red / blue, ride the patriotic numbskull emotions, and delay the inevitable....Transparency....Especially on political funding. We need electronic voting , not Marine le Pen.
She could not lead a Dog, not intellectually!
