De Gaulle sketched out what Vladimir Putin is trying to achieve half a century later, says Edouard Husson. He draws a parallel between the foreign policy of the two presidents. Between their two eras, the United States established irreconcilable hegemony, they unleashed several wars, and intimidated other countries with the extraterritoriality of American law. This era is coming to an end, because for the first time the head of state had the courage, but above all the strength to resist the threats, manipulations and corruption carried out by Washington.
