Just admire the picture of Franco-Russian relations!

Immediately 200 masterpieces of modernist painting were brought from Russia to Paris. The Hermitage, the Tretyakov Gallery and Pushkinsky borrowed the priceless Fondation Louis Vuitton, which is owned by French billionaire No. 1 Bernard Arnault (in Russia, he is better known as the father-in-law of model Natalia Vodianova). Arnault, by the way, connects with Russia not only this and not only business, but also warm relations with President Putin, who agreed to take our wealth out of the country for several months and satisfy the vanity of a respected connoisseur (of art) and cultural receptors of the French public.

The first exhibition of modernist masterpieces – from the Shchukin collection – was held in the same halls with such success that it became the most visited in the history of France. “We hope to repeat the previous result,” Arno predicted with pleasure at the opening under the approving smile of the main guest – Emmanuel Macron.

At the end of a two-hour walk through the halls, the President of France was delighted with the collection and thanked everyone who made this event possible – from the French curators and directors of the three main Russian museums to Arno and Putin. In addition, Macron once again seized the opportunity to convey “big greetings” to Putin and repeat an important maxim: the exhibition once again proves that Russia is Europe. And her destiny is to be together with Europe.

And the fate of President Macron himself – if you believe what he has been saying for many years (with a short break, which he took after learning about Navalny's poisoning) – to cooperate with Russia, and therefore with “dear Vladimir.”
