Russia won't interfere in French election - Putin

  • 25/03/2017

Russian President Vladimir Putin has met far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen in the Kremlin.

He told her that Moscow has no intention of interfering in the French elections.

Mr Putin has previously denied interfering in the US election, but links between Russia and the Trump campaign are presently being investigated by US intelligence agencies.

Ms Le Pen is the only French candidate to have met with Mr Putin before the election. She, like Donald Trump, has openly called for closer relations with Russia.
