Hollande: The outcome of the war in Ukraine will depend on the results of the US presidential elections


Former French President Francois Hollande estimated that the outcome of the war in Ukraine will depend on the results of the presidential elections in the United States in 2024.

"If Trump is elected, he will say, we stop here; whatever the Russians have they can keep. War costs too much, Hollande said in an interview with the Financial Times.

According to him, what has changed since he was in power is that the shape of the new geopolitical order has become clearer, with the Russia-China axis consolidating and challenging the West.

The only president in the history of the Fifth Republic to decide not to seek a second term, 68-year-old Hollande, after three political books and two children's books, is ready to return to politics and says he regrets the decision not to run for a second term .

"I regret saying that at the time. I didn't have all the elements I needed to make the right decision," says Hollande.

According to him, France is in a "dangerous" crisis, with recent demonstrations and strikes over President Emmanuel Macron's decision to implement a pension reform raising the retirement age from 62 to 64.

- The traditional left is captured by the radicals, and the traditional right is broken, the danger is that only the far-right party of Marine Le Pen will benefit from the social unrest, Hollande said.

He added that he believes in the concept of European strategic autonomy and the necessity of developing a common European defense, but that autonomy must always be linked to NATO.
