Russia and France seal new ‘alliance’ to fight ISIS

Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Francois Hollande have agreed to step up cooperation between their military in Syria against Islamic State (ISIS), after the attacks in Paris and bombing of a Russian plane, the Kremlin said Tuesday.

“It has been agreed to assure closer contact and coordination between the military and security service agencies of the two countries in actions against terrorist groups by Russia and France in Syria,” the Kremlin said in a statement following a phone call between Putin and Hollande.

Putin also on Tuesday ordered the Russian navy in the Mediterranean to establish contact with its French counterparts and work together “as allies” in a campaign against the ISIS group in Syria.


I guess the French knew what sort of response they’d get from the EU when they asked for military assistance…
