France's Le Pen attacks suspension of Russia warship delivery

Published: 09.04.14, 10:40 / Israel News

PARIS - Marine Le Pen, leader of France's National Front, attacked the French government's decision to suspend delivery of a first warship to Russia, saying on Thursday it had acted against the national interest and caved in to US pressure.


Le Pen, whose extreme-right party has been winning voters from mainstream political groups of both left and right, has been a fierce critic
of the West's policy towards Russia in the Ukraine conflict, which she sees as overly hostile to Moscow.


On the eve of a NATO summit, President Francois Hollande's office said on Wednesday France would hold off on delivery of a first helicopter carrier, slated for October. It accused Russia of actions in Ukraine which ran "against the foundations of security in Europe."
