The European Union may collapse like the Soviet Union, said the leader of the French National Front, Marine Le Pen.
She noted that the European Union, just like the Soviet Union, can not be repaired and added that Europe should be returned to the union of sovereign states. The "post EU" Europe will see prosperity, she said.
European Council President, Herman Van Rompuy, previously expressed concerns about the growing influence of populist politicians in the EU, including right-wing ones.
Marine Le Pen is a French political leader, who is a lawyer by profession, a French politician and the president of the Front National (FN), the third-largest political party in France, since 16 January 2011. She is the youngest daughter of the French politician Jean-Marie Le Pen, former president of the FN and currently its honorary chairman. She is the aunt of Marion Maréchal-Le Pen.
