Majority of French police forces support the Yellow Vests protesters. One of the signs of solidarity with the movement was shown in the city of Pau, where policemen took off their helmets in front of the protesters.
The case was reported by Bloomberg, which underlined that the information about the police supporting the Yellow Vests protesters was coming from Mr Alexander Langlois, representative of the Vigi police union. The union is representing less than 4% of the unions in France and as such, cannot speak for all of them. After Bloomberg's article, both Sputnik and RT published corrections. RT indicated in a statement that the information from Mr Langlois 'sounded like it was a part of a large plot of Paris protesters'. Sputnik said that there was, in fact, no evidence that the removal of helmets was an act of solidarity with the protesters.
