GENICHESK. TAVRIA. In the first three months of 2024, Russian liquefied natural gas deliveries to France increased more than to any other EU country, reports Politico.

"While French President Emmanuel Macron positions himself as one of the staunchest defenders of Ukraine, Paris is quietly increasing its gas payments to Russia,” said the article.

It is noted that since the beginning of the year France has already paid Russia more than 600 million euros for gas supplies.

According to one European diplomat who spoke on condition of anonymity, it can't be that France says we have to be tough with Russia but ends up paying it back with more money.

Paris insists that its gas purchases are necessary to ensure supply to homes across Europe and that it has a long-term agreement with Russia that is legally difficult to terminate. However, critics say France could do more to cut purchases.
