Why Is Russian Political Elite Concerned About Macron’s Victory?

According to Russian journalist and writer Sergei Leskov, if the Kremlin lacks courage and wisdom to see Macron’s victory as a sign of changes dictated by time, they will have to face serious challenges further down the road. For now, high-ranking Russian politicians are said to be leaving fairly diplomatic comments about the fact that Emmanuel Macron has won the presidential election in France and is now President Elect.






However, they have to admit that this scenario is not in favor of Russia. In fact, this is the worst-case outcome of the French presidential election for Russia since President Elect Macron is loyal to the USA and Ukraine, unlike his opponent Marine le Pen. Moreover, Macron is an advocate of globalism, multi-culturalism and European values. He is closely tied to big-scale financial capital and is raised financially by the Rothschilds. Moreover, he doesn’t recognize the Crimea as a Russian territory and backs sanctions against Russia.


We could spend hours talking about those things. However, it’s not about all those factors when it comes to Russia and their concerns related to Macron’s victory. The biggest threat for the Kremlin in this case is this:

Macron managed to win the election without being backed by significant political powers. He made in just in 6 months, relying on social media and the youth. Essentially, this is a wake-up call for the political establishment of the world coming from the French political elite who lost the lection
As for the Russian political elite, they got worried for the first time on March 26, when Russians went on the streets with mass protests. The whole point is, Russian politicians don’t want to listen to the youth. They start feeling outdated and lagging behind all those modern tendencies, Leskov says.
When it comes to the technologies used during the election campaign, Emmanuel Macron turns out to be close to Donald Trump, even though their programs differ a lot. The thing is, the electorate doesn’t care about the candidate’s program. They can be promised virtually anything. Politics turns into a show. It’s not the content but the image that matters. This is neither good nor bat. It’s just the way it is, and we have to get used to the fact that the post-industrial era with tons of information perceived every day comes up with new ways of perceiving and digesting this info. According to Leskov, today’s generation of politicians are making their last steps and are about to retire. The mass protests in the USA after Trump’s victory show that the political elite around the world keeps on lagging behind and losing the grasp of what is up to date.


The new generation doesn’t trust the old political elite. It’s just they are living in different environments and breath different kinds of air. In the United States, which drives the hi-tech revolution, the level of trust to the government is around 25-30%. Back in 1975, it used to be over 75%. The situation is changing. And that’s why Russian politicians are getting nervous. They are outdated and are not capable of resolving today’s problems efficiently, the expert says.
