MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Russia is not going to interfere in France’s internal affairs and the election campaign taking place in that country, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
Moscow regards a possible decision by Francois Fillon against participating in the presidential race "as exclusively France’s internal affairs," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"We do not have the slightest intention to somehow interfere in the electoral processes in France," Peskov said.
According to the spokesman, "this is the country, the relations with which we quite appreciate, despite the existing problems."
The French presidential elections will be held in two rounds - on April 23 and on May 7. The latest opinion polls show that Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s National Front , will be the front-runner at the elections.
