France's Le Pen Put on Spot over Russia While Rallying Right

France's Le Pen Put on Spot over Russia While Rallying Right

Tuesday, 14 May 2019 12:39 PM EDT

HELSINKI (AP) — French far-right leader Marine Le Pen says media reports indicating her party has links to the Kremlin are "insulting" and the suggestion that National Rally accepted Russian money is a "lie."

National Rally leader Marine Le Pen made the comments while visiting Estonia on Tuesday for a meeting of an alliance of European populist and far-right parties preparing for this month's European Union parliament elections.

Politicians in Estonia, an EU member and former Soviet republic, are not eager to be associated with pro-Russia agendas.

At a news conference in Tallinn, an Estonian journalist asked Le Pen about French news reports about a loan her party received from a Czech-Russian bank in 2014 and allegations that Russia supported her 2017 presidential campaign.

Le Pen responded: "I do not depend on anyone."
