A representative of the French Foreign Ministry said that he was preparing, together with his European and Ukrainian partners, to create a tribunal to investigate Russia's actions in Ukraine. According to him, the work has already begun.

"We have started working with our European and Ukrainian partners," RT quotes him as saying.

Washington and Paris reaffirm their support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and will continue to provide assistance to Kiev "as long as it takes," according to a joint statement adopted at a meeting between Presidents Joe Biden of the United States and Emmanuel Macron of France on Thursday.

French President Emmanuel Macron snatched an unexpected win from his U.S counterpart during a visit to Washington on Thursday, getting Joe Biden to suggest that European companies could benefit from a controversial American subsidies package.

Macron then began speaking to the president and raised his finger to gesture at the crowd, at which point Biden finally turned back around to face photographers.

Off the stage, while the two presidents greeted members of the audience Biden seemed to wander aimlessly and had to be continually brought back to the group by Macron.

The French president remained engaged with the crowd, but as Biden began to shuffle off Macron grabbed his arm and directed him back into the group.

French retail chain Fnac has stopped selling a card game based around the far-left extremist group Antifa after a complaint by a French police union, removing the item from their website.

The French retailer removed the “Antifa: the Game” product from their website after complaints on social media over the weekend when the Union of Commissioners of the National Police (SCPN), a national police union, and members of the populist National Rally (RN) highlighted the game.

President Emmanuel Macron begins his three-day state visit to the US on Wednesday bolstered by shared bilateral visions on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and China’s assertiveness in the Indo-Pacific. But President Joe Biden’s latest Inflation Reduction Act has alarmed the EU, and the French leader will have to stake a firm position on US subsidies and protectionism.

Sometimes the internet being eternal works to our advantage. Recently, there’s been a dustup in European politics over a three-year old video of now Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni stepping on the third rail of European politics.
