Description

Florian Philippot is a French politician and former member of the National Front (FN), now called the National Rally. He was a close ally of Marine Le Pen, the former leader of the party, and served as the party’s vice president until he was expelled in 2017 due to disagreements over the party’s direction. After his departure from the National Front, he founded his own party, Les Patriotes, which is known for its eurosceptic and anti-immigrant stance.

Philippot’s political views are characterized by his opposition to the European Union and his pro-Russian stance. He has been criticized for his connections to Moscow and has been accused of spreading Russian propaganda. In 2018, Philippot visited Moscow and met with Russian officials, including Sergei Zheleznyak, the deputy chairman of the Russian Duma’s international affairs committee. During the visit, Philippot praised Russia for its role in the fight against terrorism and called for closer ties between France and Russia.

In terms of foreign policy, Philippot is a vocal critic of NATO and has called for closer ties between France and Russia. He has expressed his opposition to sanctions against Russia and has defended Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In 2019, he signed a cooperation agreement with the far-right Russian party Rodina, which is known for its nationalist and pro-Putin views.

Regarding the war between Russia and Ukraine, Philippot has been criticized for his pro-Russian stance. He has blamed the conflict on the West and has accused the Ukrainian government of being responsible for the violence. In a tweet in March 2022, he suggested that the war was a result of Western interference in Ukraine and called for a peaceful resolution to the conflict. His comments were widely criticized, and many accused him of spreading Russian propaganda.
