The French Far Right in Russia's Orbit

Abstract : programme « The Far Right in Europe and Russia’s Role and Influence », New York, Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs et Foundation Open Society Institute, en coopération avec l’Open Society Initiative for Europe, 2018. Far-right groups in France are not restricted to the party of the Le Pen family. They are diverse, operate through networks, and are now well within Russia's force field. But this is not only the result of Vladimir Putin's charisma or Marine Le Pen's need for funds. The Russian question has drawn French nationalist activists into combat, both at the rhetorical level—over the promotion of competing geopolitical visions—and at the level of armed combat. These debates are rich, grounded in their organicist thinking and its definition of the relationship between ethnicities and the nation. The wars in the former Yugoslavia and in Ukraine have considerably intensified both the orientation of these groups toward Moscow and the practical aspects of their relationships to the Russian political scene.
