Le Pen says, if elected, will mull swift lifting of Russia sanctions

MOSCOW (Reuters) - French far-right party leader Marine Le Pen said on Friday after meeting President Vladimir Putin in the Kremlin she would consider what she had to do to swiftly lift European Union sanctions imposed on Russia over the Ukraine crisis if elected.

Addressing reporters in a Moscow hotel, she also said she did not discuss financial support for her party with Putin and that the aim of her Russia visit was not to boost her electoral chances.
