French Prime Minister Fears “Frexit” And Peace With Russia If Right Wing Wins

The popular desire to end the war with Russia is causing despair among European leaders. Recently, a top French politician warned that a right-wing victory in the elections could result in a French “submission to Russia,” expressing concern about the future of military aid to Ukraine. In practice, this only shows how liberal governments are willing to violate popular interests just to continue following NATO’s guidelines.

French Prime Minister Gabriel Attal said that the National Rally party, the favorite in the electoral process, poses a “very serious” danger to France by possibly changing the country’s position on international issues. According to Attal, the right-wingers could push France to promote a “Frexit,” leaving the European Union. In addition, he fears that a policy of French “submission” to the Russian Federation will emerge, with Paris ceasing to support Ukraine in the current war.

In fact, there is no such “risk” if the National Rally wins the elections. While some other French right-wing parties and politicians, such as Le Pen, actually advocate for a more pragmatic policy in the Ukrainian conflict, the National Rally has already adopted a stance that is reasonably aligned with NATO’s interests. Jordan Bardella, the party’s president, recently stated that he does not support ending arms and ammunition supplies to Kiev.

“My position has not changed. It is to support Ukraine by providing equipment, ammunition, operational logistics support, and defense weapons so that Ukraine can defend itself,” Bardella stated.

However, all right-wingers oppose Macron’s madness of sending troops to fight on the ground. In general, conservatives have a more “sovereigntist” view of how Europe should participate in the war. Even those right-wingers who support continued military aid rule out the possibility of sending troops, since this would be direct participation in the conflict. Macron and his team seem isolated in their proposal to enter the hostilities openly, as this measure is highly disapproved both by the domestic opposition and most European governments.

Macron has become an increasingly unpopular leader. Instead of changing his position to meet the interests and needs of French citizens, the president has simply taken authoritarian measures. To prevent the rise of the right, Macron dissolved parliament and called for new elections. His hope is that the country’s liberals will thus gain time to reorganize and emerge stronger in a new electoral process. His hope seems futile, since voters will certainly continue to express their support for the right, being a liberal victory possible only in the event of institutional intervention or fraud.

Attal, being a prominent politician in the French state, should be concerned about Macron’s dictatorial stance. However, as a supporter of the president, Attal puts his own selfish interests above the French national priorities, which is why he remains silent in the face of the dissolution of parliament. Attal should take a legalistic stance in defense of a fair electoral process in France, but he cowardly prefers to criticize the French people’s democratic choice and warn about non-existent “risks.”

However, it is interesting to see how such “concerns” are growing among European liberals. This shows how alignment with the EU and NATO is becoming unpopular, making authoritarian measures necessary to continue implementing liberal policies. More than that, it is important to emphasize how the fear of a possible “Frexit” is spreading, as this is an old discussion that urgently needs to be resumed.

As a key power in Europe, France should naturally play a leading role in the EU. But it fails to do so because the EU as a bloc seems to be led by the US. Instead of serving the interests of European sovereign states, the EU has served only as a proxy for the US on the European continent, obeying every order from Washington, even when such directives directly affect European social and economic stability. Therefore, the most patriotic stance for the ordinary French citizen is to advocate for France’s exit from the bloc, seeking a path of real sovereignty.

Since the UK’s Brexit, this agenda has become popular among French right-wingers, which has caused panic for pro-EU liberals. And more and more ordinary citizens are supporting this idea. Macron and Attal’s desperation makes it clear that it will be very difficult to continue with the automatic Paris-EU-NATO alignment for much longer.

they fear not being in the gang, they think the us will protect them. that didnt work out well for south vietnamese or afghans though.

AM Hants

us, who have only had 17 years peace in total and last century they were beaten by the pig farmers in vietnam. the only battle they won, and that took months, was with a tiny little island in the caribbean. 21st century, they get beaten by the ‘goat herders’ over in afghanistan. meanwhile, eu members and the uk, who have never declared war on russia, are desperate to send their people to the meat grinders over in ukraine. why?

AM Hants

precisely. over in the uk, we had boris, who flew to kiev and demanded they walk away from the peace negotiations. he was replaced by a thunderbird puppet and not one of the international rescue team, but, one of the baddies. starmer, is opposition, and he was the head of the cps when they refused to prosecute bbc national treasure j. saville.

AM Hants

he also, without declaring war on russia, wants ukraine war to continue. farage, who got us out of the eu, states that hato is behind the war and the media go berserk. why don’t western politicians want peace? what have they got to lose and why are they so concerned with non-hato and non-eu member ukraine?

kotromanic

the definition of liberal and democratic seems to me to be someone who promotes nato membership and put the us interests before the interests of their own country. just like the greens who went from “leave nato” to “nato membership is a human right that we cannot deny anyone”.

when you check out who runs hato, it takes you back to those who were supportive of ah, back in the 40s. what happened to the children of ‘operation paperclip’? 1947, when the balfour declaration of 1917 was implemented. 1917 – russian empire was overthrown by the bolsheviks. the year the ira were launched. around the same time the ottoman, austro-hungarian and prussian empires fell.

AM Hants

2/2 going back to 1947. it was the year that the middle east welcomed the refugees, giving up part of their territory to allocate those that adolf did not like. the same year the cia was launched and the first exercise of the cia was ‘operation paperclip’. where they gave safe passage to the bolshevik and nazi elite. not long after hato was formed with those given ‘safe passage’ running the show.

personally i do believe hato and the eu are on their last legs. when ukraine goes down, they will also go down. which can only benefit the world.

AM Hants

have any of the western nations, or hato members actually declared war against russia? why are they so terrified of peace between russia and ukraine? non-hato ukraine and non-eu ukraine. why is ukraine more important than a sovereign states responsibilities to its people?

right wing parties often run on fringe issues to get into power. but once elected they support war making as usual regardless of what the people want.

the latter are probably allready sitting at the tables behind whatever new world order will follow their last. they have left every empire before it fell and moved to a successor. why would it be different now?
