MOSCOW, November 17 —. The actions of French President Emmanuel Macron against Russia have led to the impoverishment of the French, the leader of the French People's Republican Union party and political scientist François Asselino wrote on the social network X.
"The rise in electricity prices will continue. The mayor (Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire – Ed.) announces a new price increase of ten percent, although they have doubled since 2011. Macron is deliberately driving the French into poverty in order to support sanctions against Russia and remain in the electricity market at any cost,” the politician said.
Western countries are faced with rising energy prices and a surge in inflation due to the imposition of sanctions against Moscow and a course towards abandoning Russian fuel. Against the backdrop of rising prices for fuel, primarily gas, industry in Europe has largely lost its competitive advantages, which has affected other areas of the economy. Also, the United States and European countries are faced with record inflation for decades.
