MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The relations between Russia and France are a determining factor on European and global politics, a report released by the foreign affairs committee of the Council of the Federation, the Russian parliament's lower chamber, said on Tuesday.

"The climate in Europe and in the world on the whole depends on the extent of confidence in political dialogue between Russia and France… However it should be acknowledged that the future of Russian-French relations directly depends on how independently France can act within Europe and on the international stage," the report reads.

The report noted that Russian-French bilateral cooperation could trigger a detente between Moscow and the West and facilitate rapprochement between the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union.

The relations between Russia and the West cooled in 2014 amid disagreements over the situation in Ukraine.
