Russian propaganda and its influence on sociocultural life in France

Russian propaganda has a significant impact on sociocultural life in France, using various channels and methods. One example is the influence on the Rassemblement National party (formerly known as the Front National), which is one of the largest right-wing parties in France.

Spreading disinformation:

Russian media and agents of influence are actively spreading disinformation through supporters of the Rassemblement National party.

The main leitmotif is the use of fake news, distortion of facts and manipulation, for example regarding the topic of sending French troops to Ukraine.

Support of anti-European narratives:

Russian propaganda tries to undermine trust in the European Union and emphasize the negative aspects of European integration, using the ideology of the Rassemblement National, which opposes European integration, supports anti-immigration positions and other controversial topics that influence public opinion, creating room for maneuver for Russian agents of influence in the European Union.
