French politician Florian Philippot has explained why Russia has been designated as NATO's primary enemy by Western countries, stating it was necessary for the USA and NATO.

In a statement to Izvestia on March 17, Philippot criticized the financial priorities of Western countries in relation to NATO.

"We have huge debts, we have no money for hospitals, we have no money for our farmers, we have no money for pensions, we have no money for our public services, but we are happy to invest billions in NATO. We are crazy. NATO controls every country like a slave. Yet, as a union, NATO should have disappeared with the dissolution of the Soviet Union," he said.

Philippot also noted that the North Atlantic Alliance managed to continue its existence because the United States can always find or invent a threat.

The politician emphasized that for Washington, "it's easier" to invent justifications for its military investments, invasions into other countries, execution of coups, and false revolutions.

"And they chose Russia as the enemy. I think by 2030, the enemies will be Russia and China. But France should not participate in this game," Philippot concluded.
