The press release was published a few hours later The Figaro revealed the information. “It’s a relief given the political argument this simple loan had become,” RN treasurer Kévin Pfeffer told the newspaper.
“Despite the deadline scheduled for December 20, 2028, it is 60 months in advance that the National Group complied with the repayment of the balance of its loan for an amount of 6,088,784.00 euros – capital and interest included », further attests the far-right party in its press release.
Contract ” It was transmitted in 2016, by the Russian justice system, completely independently of our will, to the company Aviazapchast SA, a company with which the RN has met its quarterly deadlines since September 2019. », laments the party.
« This early reimbursement was possible thanks to the savings policy, restructuring of its services, and renegotiation of its contracts carried out for several years by the RN. “, the National Group still believes.
In 2014, the RN obtained a loan from a Russian bank, the First Czech Russian Bank, to finance its campaign for the 2015 regional and departmental elections. A loan of 9.4 million euros that the party had to repay in 2028 from the creditors of the bank, which has since gone bankrupt.
Jordan Bardella’s party assured, in its press release, that “This loan had been contracted to finance his political activities and ensure his participation in the elections” because all the French banks had refused at that time to grant him a loan.
