Coupe de France for Nantes, French rugby to shine in Europe, Formula 1 in America… Here’s what to remember from the weekend’s sports news.

08:23 : Why is censorship imposed on the Russian side of this conflict? We are well aware that this is propaganda but specifically, it is necessary to listen to it in order to better fight it. Otherwise, it feeds the conspiracy and this propaganda that will not stop hiding it. Thank you for your work.

08:23 : Hello, on the contrary, I find it good to invite the spokesman of the Russian embassy, ​​in order to show the French people the ideological blockade of the Russians.

08:23 : No, you are right. We must also pass on shameful lies to the Russian authorities. So they spread their words from time to time. This is how the truth is revealed

08:23 : You claim that you are a smart media, we cannot invite a Russian, whoever and whatever his position is, he is just a liar, he insults them by showing their persistent and persistent propaganda. I wish you a happy day!

8:25 In the comments, there is an argument between those who believe that representatives of the Russian authorities should not be invited and those who, on the contrary, believe that it is necessary to listen to these remarks knowing that they are about propaganda. I’ll let you make up your own mind, even if it seems logical to me to give the word to everyone, with good context each time you come from that word.

08:09 : Shut up this propaganda that accuses the Ukrainians of the practices used by the Russians!!!

08:09 Unsustainable pro-Russian responses in progress…

08:04 : Hello. Why do you invite a spokesman for the Russian Embassy to speak on your antenna? It only conveys the propaganda of the Russian regime. What interest?

08:04 : “No one has declared war on anyone.”And reassured spokesman for the Russian Embassy in France, Alexander Makogonov. In the comments, many of you are indignant at the diplomat’s interference on our antenna.

07:33 : “It is quite clear that Putin has no limits”Franceinfo announces Olha Stevanishina, Ukraine’s deputy prime minister, as Russia celebrates its victory over Nazi Germany during World War II.

07:33 : But the recent outrageous statements of Sergei Lavrov are also those of a man in decline, who has not decided anything on the Ukrainian file and whose image abroad may never recover from his support for the invasion. Watch the nearly empty room in which he gave one of his speeches to the United Nations in early March. But if he remains in place on the day this war ends, it will be necessary to go through it to negotiate peace. Another reason to read the image of this important man in Russian power.

07:25 : “He often gave big speeches about the past and his feeling of ‘double standards’ toward Russia. He felt there were rules that we wanted to impose on them without us respecting them.”

If he serves above all Kremlin propaganda, then Sergei Lavrov shares Vladimir Putin the same idea of ​​Russia’s place in the world and the mistrust of the West. After the January 2015 attacks in Paris, he went so far as to reprimand the French ambassador, ruling France as responsible for its lack of firmness with Muslims.

07:34 : The large silhouette of Sergei Lavrov is not necessarily familiar to the French public, part of the furniture in Russia, where he was the head of diplomacy for 18 years. The longevity he owes his loyalty: It’s his master’s voice., summarizes Sylvie Berman, France’s ambassador to Russia from 2017 to 2019. But he’s also an effective diplomat who knows how to worry his interlocutors. In February, he compared his meeting with his British counterpart to A conversation between the deaf and dumb.

07:23 : by evoking the alleged “Jewish blood” Hitler, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was so shocked that Vladimir Putin ended up apologizing to Israel. Since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, this seasoned diplomat has become one of Moscow’s main spokesmen, whether it is about presenting Ukrainian power as Nazism or threatening the threat of nuclear war. I tell you about the change of this once respected diplomat.
