Putin tried to suppress voter turn-out and help anti-European parties. Good to see that he failed miserably! Turn-out was the highest in more than 20 years and the overwhelming majority voted for pro-European parties!

Today, in 1985, five countries signed The Schengen Agreement. 
 The Area is one of the greatest successes of European integration: over 400 million people can now travel freely! Vital we preserve that achievement by better protecting EU's external borders.

Trump’s aggressive trade policy calls for new free and fair trade agreements between Europe and the rest of the world, as well as an ambitious and modern economic development roadmap! In troubled times for multilateralism, our destiny lies in our hands!

Ivan Golunov uncovered massive corruption schemes in Moscow town hall. He was beaten& arrested on dubious charges. This is how Putin’s capitalism for friends treats critics & journalists pushing for accountability. All charges must be dropped & journalists allowed to work!

The history of France and the US are intertwined. France helped the US to become independent and the US has liberated the French from the Nazi’s. We are transatlantic friends. Let us never forget that we are stronger when we work together!
