Relief from US to maintain ‘anti-Russian solidarity’ in Macron’s re-election… “Putin is shocked”



When French President Macron, a centrist-leaning French president, was re-elected, the United States and other major Western countries are relieved.

If the pro-Russian far-right candidate had won, it was because a rift in the West was inevitable in Russia’s response to the invasion of Ukraine.

But President Putin also congratulated Macron on his re-election.

The West, closely watching the French presidential election, expressed relief over the success of President Emmanuel Macron’s second term.

The White House said US President Joe Biden had a phone call with French President Macron to congratulate him on his re-election and to discuss international issues, including the Ukraine crisis.

Earlier, in a meeting with reporters, President Biden expressed his joy over the success of President Macron’s second term.

In the West, Macron’s rival, Marine Le Pen, has been watching with mixed eyes.

This is because Le Pen is pro-Russian, and there was a sense of crisis that if the European Union EU and NATO were elected president of France, which has a lot of influence, there was a sense of urgency that the united power of the West against Russia could collapse.

Candidate Le Pen made a promise to reduce France’s role in NATO and promote a ‘strategic reconciliation’ with Russia after the war in Ukraine is over.

The recent announcement of a joint letter from the German, Spanish and Portuguese prime ministers urging Macron to support President Macron was also an extension of this atmosphere.

Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin also sent a congratulatory message to Macron on the success of his second term, the Kremlin said.

CNN reported that Macron’s re-election would be a major shock to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
