MOSCOW, April 3. /TASS/. The European Union’s anti-Russian sanctions have had no impacts on Russia-France relations in the sphere of culture, Anne-Marie Descotes, Director-General for Globalization, Development and Partnerships of the French Foreign Ministry told TASS on Sunday.
"The sanctions imposed by the European Union have not impacted cultural ties and, as far as I can see, they have not impaired the mutual attraction our peoples feel towards each other. Numerous joint projects we continue to implement only prove this," she said.
"Hence, our presence in Russia has not diminished," she stressed.
According to the French diplomat, France plans to expand the network of its Alliance Francaise centers of the French language and culture. "It is planned to open a new center in Ufa in the nearest future," she said.
