Vladimir Putin's attempts to court European support has landed him in the same folds as far right Europeans, who generally viewed as controversial figures in their home countries, said Bernard Henri Lévy, a French intellectual and journalist. Lévy pointed out the irony in this: Though the Russian press routinely lambasts the new Ukrainian government as "fascist" and "neo-Nazi," the Kremlin has much stronger ties to far-right groups, if not domestically, then certainly to those in Europe.
