  • Non merci: French voters reject corruption in politics

In Moscow, the National Front (FN) leader will meet Russian MPs, but it is not clear whether she will also hold talks with President Vladimir Putin.

Ludovic de Danne, Ms Le Pen's worldwide advisor who took part in the meeting with Mr Putin, said: "He wished her good luck".

Potential Russian involvement in western elections has become a more sensitive issue since USA intelligence agencies accused their Russian counterparts of seeking to influence the US election through hacking, something Moscow has denied.

Recent opinion polls in France put Ms Le Pen neck-and-neck in the first round with centrist candidate Emmanuel Macron, with Mr Macron winning the run-off. She had traveled to NY earlier this year and was seen at Trump Tower, the NY home of U.S. President Donald Trump, but did not meet Trump himself.

"Of course I know that the election campaign in France is actively developing", said Putin. The center-left party of Emmanuel Macron, Le Pen's leading opponent, accused Russian Federation in mid-February of hacking its campaign computer systems, a claim Moscow dismissed as "absurd".

After the meeting she said that Mr Putin represented "a new vision". The meeting was a surprise addition to her meeting with Russian lawmakers, which was announced earlier this week.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: 'Russia is ready to stay in contact with representatives of all political forces, with the current leadership, with representatives of the opposition'. Russian Federation and France should unite to fight global terrorism, she added. According to him, Le Pen did not discuss the possibility of Russia's financial help for her presidential election.

"I expect more anti-Macron campaigns will be coming".

The Russian state-run Sputnik news agency and the TV network RT have French-language websites, but they are mostly aimed at those who already have a pro-Russia worldview.

At this moment, Putin's meeting with Le Pen seems to be a significant move.

The Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, on Thursday also said it was "fictional" to think Russia wanted to interfere in the French vote, before praising Le Pen as a "realist or anti-globalist" figure.

She made the unsubstantiated claim that Ukrainian soldiers were targeting civilians in Russia-occupied parts of eastern Ukraine in what she called "a war crime". She is against imposing sanctions on Russian Federation over Kremlin's role in the Ukraine conflict.
