France's Le Pen meets Putin in Moscow

France's Le Pen meets Putin in Moscowā€¯

The global web of far right politicians includes the likes of President Donald Trump in the United States, MEP Nigel Farage in the United Kingdom, President Vladimir Putin in Russian Federation and an aspiring president - Marine Le Pen in France.

"The time has come to defeat globalists", French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen told a rally on Sunday, stating "the European Union will die because the people do not want it anymore".

Mr Putin has previously denied interfering in the USA election, but links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign are presently being investigated by U.S. intelligence agencies.

Victory for Marine Le Pen in the French presidential election could force the market to dust off its playbook from the eurozone sovereign crisis of 2011, according JP Morgan Cazenove.

Addressing reporters in a Moscow hotel, she also said she did not discuss financial support for her party with Putin and that the aim of her Russian Federation visit was not to boost her electoral chances.

She said Putin represented a "new vision" of the world.

But calls for a detente with Russian Federation have drawn criticism in France, and Le Pen's conservative rival in the presidential race, Francois Fillon, has also been hit by charges of being too close to Putin.

Marine Le Pen is looking for fresh source of funding as she is running for president.

"We by no means want to influence the current events, but we reserve the right to communicate with all representatives of all political forces of the country, as do our partners in Europe and the United States for example", Interfax news agency quoted Putin as telling Le Pen. Many of her core supporters admire the Russian president's stance on various moral and social issues. Le Pen has in the past received millions of euros worth of loans from Russian banks. Which explains why the Kremlin leader took the decision to meet her in Moscow. "But let's not forget who they are, what they do, and the nature of their regime", Macron said.

"I have always been opposed to these sanctions that I thought were profoundly unfair and utterly counterproductive", she said.

Le Pen said Friday that if she were elected, she would "ponder lifting sanctions" against Russian Federation.

The Front National treasurer, Wallerand de Saint-Just, has insisted Le Pen's visit is not a campaign fundraising exercise.
