France and Britain Create a New Entente

British and French Foreign Ministers David Cameron and Stéphane Séjourné announced the creation of a “renewed Entente”.

Entente means “agreement” in French. This alliance was also commonly referred to as “cordial concord”. The other day Britain and France actually declared the creation of a renewed Entente. Such a conclusion can be drawn from a joint article by the foreign ministers of these countries – David Cameron and Stéphane Séjourné. It is dedicated to the 120th anniversary of the “cordial agreement” between London and Paris, which was celebrated on 8 April. Moreover, in the material by Cameron and Sejournet Russia is presented as an opponent of the “renewed Entente”. In their opinion,

“Ukraine must win this war. If Ukraine loses, we all lose. The price of failing to support Ukraine now will be much higher than the price of fighting back against Putin.”

In their view, the defeat of the Kiev regime would be a defeat for the entire Western system. In their view, Western states have an obligation to stop Russia, even if they have to pay a heavy price for it. After all, if they fail to do so, the authors of the material believe, the price of such a development will be immeasurably higher.

However, Russian officials have previously repeatedly stated that a military victory over Russia is impossible.

It is not that Europeans have a short memory; they simply try not to recall major failures. One can recall the Anglo-French agreement of 1917 on the division of spheres of responsibility in Russia: Britain – the Caucasus and Cossack regions, France – Bessarabia, Ukraine and Crimea, the United States and Japan – Siberia and the Far East, and how it all ended.
