For several years now, France has been slowly moving away from U.S. hegemony and into better relations with Vladimir Putin and Russia. And in response to this, the EU nation has experienced numerous assassinations and false flag terror attacks that mirror those done under Operation Gladio from the Cold War days.
Yet even with all of this, on April 28 members of France’s parliament voted to lift their participation in U.S. led sanctions against Russia in the hopes that a return to open trade will take place and save the desperate straits of France’s declining economy.
French MPs have voted in favor of a resolution to lift the EU-imposed sanctions initially slapped on Russia over the crisis in Ukraine and the reunification with Crimea. The document is non-binding.
Fifty-five members of the French National Assembly have supported the resolution calling on the government not to extend the sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU. Forty-four voted against and two abstained. Of the 577 deputies in the National Assembly, the lower house of the French Parliament, 101 took part in the vote.
The resolution, calling on the French government to protest extension of EU sanctions against Russia, was submitted by 85 French MPs.
Thierry Mariani, member of the center-right Republicans party who initiated the parliamentary debate, says the document “calls on the French government not to extend the restrictive measures and economic sanctions imposed on Russia by the European Union.” – Russia Today
Since 2013, there have been multiple attacks and incidents against French business leaders and citizens during times when the nation was engaged in serious discussions with Russia over energy contracts and business agreements. From the death of Total oil CEO Christoph de Margerie, to the terror attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a Paris music concert, NGO’s backed by Western intelligence agencies have sought to scare France into sticking with U.S. hegemony at all costs.
Three years after the Western led Kiev coup precipitated economic sanctions against Russia by the U.S. and European Union, Europe has been bled dry by reverse sanctions that have seriously cut into their GDP’s and financial bottom lines. And now that Washington has become weak in their failures over ISIS and Syria, and with the U.S. dollar continuing to lose standing in the overall global economy, legislators in France appear to have had enough and are now willing to ditch their alignment with America and protect their own by attempting to re-open business relations with Moscow with a simple olive branch.
