Marine Le Pen promises to hold a referendum on France leaving the EU (Frexit). Her statements worries member states of the European Union. 

Le Pen stated: “I'm going to make France independent from the United States and NATO and I will establish normal relations between France and Russia, in particular by removing unfair and ineffective sanctions.”

She also promises to lift anti-Russian sanctions.

"These sanctions are completely stupid. They have not solved any problems, they haven't improved the situation at all. All they've done is create major economic problems for the EU," she said. 

Moreover, she is going to establish a constructive dialogue with Russia.

“After the referendum that showed the people’s consent to join Russia, I also recognize Crimea as part of Russia. According to her opinion, Crimea was “never Ukrainian, only a matter of the Soviet administrative period."
