Macron will not be able to fulfill his promises on Ukraine due to the elections in France – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

There are also growing doubts about increasing EU defense spending through crowdfunding, something Macron also strongly supports, according to experts familiar with the matter.

In France, Macron’s party and its allies are now some distance behind their far-right and left-wing rivals in opinion polls. If Marine Le Pen’s national rally manages to secure majority support, it will pose a serious problem for EU leaders meeting in Brussels to discuss plans to toughen policy towards Russia.

In France, the president is the head of the armed forces, but the state budget is represented by the government, led by the prime minister and approved by parliament. This could lead to the lower house of parliament being dominated by parties with very different priorities after two rounds of voting scheduled for June 30 and July 7.

Parliamentary elections in France cast doubt on additional EU defense spending that Macron wanted to discuss at an EU summit next week. The European Commission, the EU’s executive arm, is likely to propose these options in the coming days. However, joint borrowing is still under discussion and could be cancelled, given the strong resistance from frugal countries and the fact that France is now in a weaker position.
