Emmanuel Macron may deprive Vladimir Putin of the Order of the Legion of Honor


French President Emmanuel Macron said that he could deprive Russian President Vladimir of the Order of the Legion of Honor. According to him, this would be a symbolic but important gesture. Oh, so the decision was previously requested by some French legislators and activists.

“I don’t exclude anything… but today I don’t have such a decision. They are filled with many meanings, and I think that the right moment should be chosen to accept them, ”Emmanuel Macron told reporters after the end of the EU summit in Brussels (translated by RIA Novosti).

The day before, Emmanuel Macron presented the Order of the Legion of Honor to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky in Paris. Mr. Macron is “a tribute to Ukraine and its people.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin received the Legion of Honor of the highest degree in 2006. He became the first Russian to receive this award.

Previously, Emmanuel Macron has already deprived people of the Order of the Legion of Honor. So he withdrew the award from Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein after allegations of sexual harassment in 2017.
