The Polish Institute of International Affairs (PISM) has warned against the danger of rapprochement between Russia and France.
In a corresponding bulletin published by PISM, Polish analysts state that the pursuit of French President Emmanuel Macron of the course aimed at closer cooperation with Moscow can undermine the unity within the European Union and NATO on several issues. The reason for such actions of the French President is an attempt to counteract the growing influence of China in the EU.
PISM noted that attempts of cooperation with Russia would harm France as Macron will be represented as the world leader who supports Russian "aggressive policy."
The document also notes the intention of Paris to get economic benefits from cooperation with Moscow, as well as to increase the volume of trade and raise the rating of the French President in France.
