DISINFO: French people declare that Western policy towards Russia is a suicide


The French people talk about the West's "suicidal" policy towards Russia. The United States is dying and leading other Western countries to inevitable death, while its anti-Russian policy is also “suicidal”.


Recurrent deceptive metonymy about US-European relations and Western-Russia relations.

An opinion of a consultant interviewed by a conservative media is being wrongly presented is a common attitude of the French society. Extending the opinion of one individual consultant to the whole French population is wrong and has been described as a manipulative technique. In reality, only 17% of the French population consider Russia as an ally while 53% consider the US as such (survey from Harris Interactive for MGH Partners (December 2021)).
