The President of France Emmanuel macron said that he respects Russian President Vladimir Putin, who, however, “dreaming about the collapse of the EU.” He told about it in interview to the Swedish TV, reports RIA Novosti.
“I respect Vladimir Putin and I am one of those who believes that we must create new approaches to security with Russia, we need a discussion with Russia. But Putin’s dream — to dismantle the EU,” said macron.
The reason for the question was the election campaign in Sweden, which is held in connection with the parliamentary elections on 9 September. One of the leaders of the social conservative party “Democrats of Sweden” Jimmi the Devil asked who impressed him the macron or Putin. He refused to answer the question, citing a reluctance to make any kind of choice.
On 15 July hosted a meeting of Vladimir Putin and Emmanuel Macron. The French leader then noted that this meeting will enable the two parties to continue the dialogue on international and regional issues, including the situation in Syria.
