    For the past few weeks, western European politicians have been worried about what will happen if Russia wins the war. However, now they are concerned about something else: what might happen if Ukraine really wins. This is reported by the publication Politico, referring to officials of Western countries. "Ukraine's recent success in ousting Russian troops from some of the Occupied Territories has prompted leaders from France to Germany and Italy to conclude that a once unthinkable victory for Ukraine is now quite possible," the report said. In particular, European politicians are thinking about the fact that the "humiliation" of Russia...

    Emmanuel Macron has warned it could take decades for Ukraine to join the EU as he proposed a new political organisation on the continent. During a speech marking Europe Day in Strasbourg, the French president said 'we all know perfectly that the process of allowing (Ukraine) to join would take several years, in fact probably several decades.' He added: 'That is the truth, unless we decide to lower the standards for accession. And rethink the unity of our Europe.' He also said that Europe must learn from its past mistakes to ensure Russia is not 'humiliated' in peace negotiations.

    The "Bernie Sanders-AOC" of French politics Jean-Luc Melenchon missed the second round of the presidential vote last month but his strong third place showing became a catalyst for a campaign to promote Melenchon as the only viable force to keep President President Emmanuel Macron in check. Melenchon has touted himself as the next Prime Minister of France if the "Left" could win the upcoming legislative elections of June 12th and 19th. His "France Unbowed" (LFI) party this week concluded agreements with the "Green Left", the Communists and the Socialists to run a coordinated slate of candidates across hundreds of the...

    Despite obvious resistance, within days of Emmanuel Macron’s re-election, France began progressing with the fourth dose of Covid injections for everyone and introduced a “digital identity assurance” app. The European Union (“EU”) as a whole is planning to introduce their digital identity application sometime this year to enable people to enjoy the “greater flexibility ideal for post-pandemic life.” However, a mere two days after his victory over Marine Le Pen, Macron launched a new law compliant with Brussels’ demands – the creation of the “Digital Identity Guarantee Service” (“SGIN”) which will allow French citizens to have a digital identity card...

    A group of 26 activist organizations and NGOs signed a letter to companies who advertise on Twitter, warning them to reconsider if Elon Musk makes changes. Musk has pledged to lift the 'censorship' of Twitter: critics worry that he will give free rein to those trafficking in hate speech and dangerous scientific theories. The letter writers said that Musk 'will further toxify our information ecosystem and be a direct threat to public safety' They wrote: 'Twitter risks becoming a cesspool of misinformation, with your brand attached.' Musk replied, wanting to know who was behind the 26 groups signing the...

    Russia threatened a dramatic escalation of its war in Ukraine Thursday when Russia’s Channel One featured a video depicting Russian missiles reaching Berlin, Paris, and London. According to the UK’s Express, Channel One’s 60 Minutes program, one of the most popular TV shows in Russia, featured “the chairman of the nationalist Rodina party, Aleksey Zhuravlyov,” who “suggested Russia could launch a Sarmat missile attack on the UK.” This was not, however, Zhuravlyov’s eccentric view: “Producers then cut to a map of Kaliningrad and seemed to suggest that missiles could be launched from the Russian enclave between Poland, Lithuania and the...

    Police fired tear gas to push back black-clad anarchists who ransacked business premises in the French capital Paris on Sunday during May Day protests against the policies of newly re-elected President Emmanuel Macron. Thousands of people joined May Day marches across France inwhich they called for salary increases and for Macron to drop his plan to raise the retirement age. Most were peaceful but violence broke out in Paris, where police had made 29 arrests so far, Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said on Twitter. Clashes with police broke out at the start of the march near La Republique Square and...

    The EU faces difficult questions that need to be debated now rather than later. Europe needs a strong deterrent against Moscow, and that will only be possible if France and Germany team up to advance the debate. In the end, the meeting at the United States airbase in Ramstein, Germany, resembled a ribbon ceremony with praise awarded to the most diligent. Germany is a great friend that is doing everything it can to support Ukraine, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said. It was not only thanks for the Germans’ proposal to send tanks to Ukraine, but also the polite...

    Protestors pelted French President Emmanuel Macron with tomatoes during his visit to a market in a Paris suburb only one day after his re-election. Marcon, making an appearance in Cergy in his first trip since he was re-elected on Sunday, was shielded with an umbrella by his security detail. They gathered around him, attempting to deflect the barrage of tomatoes with their bodies and limbs. When the tomatoes began to fly in his direction, Macron’s detail sprang into action, putting up the umbrella and shielding him with their hands and arms, wading into the crowd looking for the source of...

    Exclusive: French President Emmanuel Macron—the one who wanted to make unvaccinated Frenchmen second class citizens—just won reelection against more conservative Marine Le Pen, largely due to a big turnout among senior voters (Macron didn’t do so well in the under 35 graphic). One congratulation on his reelection raises some big red flags—literally. Chinese Communist Party (CCP) state media outlet Global Times, which has openly called for war and violence against China’s enemies, was seemingly full of glee at Macron’s reelection. "China and France share many similar views in terms of safeguarding multilateralism and improving global governance," Global Times wrote. "We...

    The White House signaled optimism after French President Emmanuel Macron secured his re-election victory over Marine Le Pen, despite his approval rating of 36 percent. “President Macron appears to have secured a double-digit victory over LePen, at a time when his approval rating is 36 percent,” mused President Joe Biden’s chief of staff Ronald Klain wrote on social media, calling it an “interesting observation” while sharing Macron’s polling numbers from Morning Consult.

    So just 15 minutes before the debate started, Zelensky was live talking to the debate presenters for the Macron-Le Pen debate and Zelensky said that the French voters should not vote for Le Pen and should vote for Macron instead, while the presenters were nodding in affirmation. You can watch the debate live here, though I don't see the option to go back, but I grabbed a screenshot while he was talking
  • The French election is getting hairy! EmMANuel Macron tries to woo younger voters in French presidential battle against Marine Le Pen with a series of 'behind-the-scenes' photos - including one in unbuttoned shirt showing off his chest

    In the candid pictures, the French president bears a resemblance to Bond actor Sean Connery and star Burt Reynolds - both known for their bountiful chest hair. Social media users also compared the French premier to fuzzy-chested Roger Federer. Mr Macron is running hoping to beat far-Right politician Marine Le Pen in the election. To do so, he will need to galvanise some support from the young who has surprisingly warmed to Marine Le Pen compared to her previous runs. With 12 candidates in the first round whittled down to two, now they must seek to appeal to the circa...

    Muslims in France voted overwhelmingly for Emmanuel Macron, with 85 per cent of Muslim ballots going towards keeping the French President in power. 85 per cent of votes from Muslims in France during Sunday’s general election went to keeping Emmanuel Macron in power, a poll seen by a French Catholic paper has found. It stands in stark contrast with the incumbent’s overall vote tally, with the reelected president winning just over 58 per cent of total ballots. According to a poll conducted on behalf of the Catholic La Croix magazine, around 85 per cent of Muslim voters gave their ballot...
