Jeremy Corbyn and Tom Watson glare at each other

The French far-right presidential candidate met the Russian President in Moscow, where - according to Russian media reports - Le Pen was told Russia had no intention of influencing the upcoming election in France.

The two sides reportedly did not discuss financing for Le Pen's National Front party.

Mr Putin added that Ms Le Pen - a nationalist, Eurosceptic candidate with hardline stances on immigration and radical Islam - represents a "European political force that is quickly growing".

Reporters had been told she would give a news conference at the State Duma, the lower house of parliament, after meeting Russian lawmakers, but she did not turn up for the event at the designated time.

Tillerson Enacts Trump's 'Extreme Vetting' of Travel Visas
After a court blocked the effort, a second executive order removed Iraq from the travel ban. The cable anticipates the new requirements may cause backlogs in visa processing.

"Given the fact that that the population of France has a very positive attitude towards Russian Federation, most likely, the visit will play in favor of Le Pen, therefore, she made a decision to arrive in Russian Federation and negotiate", Daria Grevtsova concluded. She ratified France in fighting terrorism and how much Russian Federation can contribute to combat it. The new headline reads: "Le Pen isn't afraid of anything". She called for European sanctions to be lifted from Russian Federation, and said Russian Federation and France should share counter-terrorism intelligence information.

In addition, Marine Le Pen spoke about the stupidity of sanctions imposed on Russian Federation.

The FN, said Le Pen, did not believe in the diplomacy of threats or sanctions, which unfortunately the European Union used increasingly frequently on Moscow and its own member states, Efe news reported.

"As far as the situation in Ukraine is concerned, I have been one of the few politicians in France who have pressed for their own viewpoint on Ukraine, identical to Russia's".

Didi Gregorius will miss Yankees opener, likely more time
The Yankees are trying to figure out how to get by now that Gregorius is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a right shoulder strain. Tyler Wade , Ronald Torreyes or perhaps Starlin Castro could share shortstop duties for the Yankees to begin the regular season.

"This is why we need to join our efforts regarding the strategic actions at the global level in order to help with the development of this region", Le Pen added. Le Pen is expected to be among the top two vote getters on April 23 who move on to a presidential runoff on May 7.

"The United States is pursuing the aim of triggering a real war in Europe by arming Ukraine".

In an interview previous year with CNN, Le Pen said she was left with no choice after French banks turned her down.

The French presidential election is followed by parliamentary elections in June.
