DISINFO: France no longer has independence, it is a puppet of the US
At present, France is completely dependent on US actions and policies and no longer has the independence it had. Therefore, if the United States imposes sanctions on the Russian Federation, then in France with each change of government, one can observe a deterioration in the economic situation, living standards and subjectivity in international relations.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the US presence in Europe. It claims that European countries are no longer truly sovereign and the US dictates policies to the EU and its member states.
France is a sovereign, independent country with a democratically elected government. France is not subordinate to the US. They are important allies, members of NATO and the United Nations. They respect mutual sovereignty and territorial integrity.
Relations between the United States and France are active and friendly. The United States is one of France’s major allies and the cooperation is particularly strong in efforts to counter terrorism. The two countries share common values and have parallel policies on most political, economic, and security issues. The US and France work closely on many issues, most notably in combating terrorism, efforts to stem the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and on regional problems, including in Africa, the Middle East, the Balkans, and Central Asia.
