Je Ne Suis Pas Donetsk

Sixty-four percent of the French support selling those Mistral amphibious warfare ships to Russia, notwithstanding the continuing Russian aggression against Ukraine--which Russia annoyingly denies.

This is the Google translation:

According to a survey commissioned by La Tribune and directed by Ifop, the French are in favor of a large majority (64%) to the delivery of two vessels Projection and Command (BPC) Mistral type in Russia.

Do recall that I mocked the notion of some Europhiles that the EU could be a different kind of superpower that relies on economic pressure rather than military means to punish foes.

UPDATE: Yeah, the backbone transplant isn't taking amongst some in Paris. No "Je Suis Fox" hashtag for freedom of the press even when wrong?
