How is Russia’s invasion of Ukraine impacting the French presidential campaign?

With the war dominating headlines, foreign policy has become the hot topic among the candidates.

Welcome to France Elects, an in-depth look at the 2022 French election.

As Russia’s siege on Ukraine continues, the New Statesman’s Europe correspondent, Ido Vock, examines how the crisis is dominating the presidential campaign, and may benefit President Emmanuel Macron after he officially announced his re-election bid last Thursday (3 March).

He is joined once again by Tara Varma from the European Council on Foreign Relations and Jeremy Cliffe, the New Statesman’s writer-at-large.
