Marine Le Pen’s far-fight party is said to have borrowed millions from a Russian bank to finance previous election campaigns.  In 2017, Le Pen met Putin and spoke of a new world order spear-headed  by Le Pen, Putin and Trump.  Neither this, nor the current devastation of Ukraine with its human rights abuses and crimes against not just humanity but the environment, have sufficiently  deterred supporters in France where she is still a contender for the presidency.  Voting takes place next Sunday.
