On 30th May, Vladimir Putin’s statement at a joint press conference with the newly elected president of France, Emmanuel Macron, alluded to Kiev’s to return to Russia, according to Petro Poroshenko.
What prompted this sentiment was Putin’s reminded that the Queen of France was the daughter of the ruler of Kievan Rus, Yaroslav the Wise.
“The history of Russian-French relations have long-standing roots. The enlightened French public knows about Russia’s Anne, Queen of France. The youngest daughter of our Grand Prince Yaroslav the Wise, was the wife of Henry the First and contributed significantly to the development of France. She was one f the founders of at least two European dynasties: Bourbon and Valois, one of which still rules in Spain”, – Putin said.
Putin’s words threaten a “new historical truth” – Kiev’s independence supporters argue, though the statement has nothing to do with today’s Russia, because Anne was of Kievan Rus (When Kiev was the Capital of Rus’.)
