Charlotte Baris: A few days ago, a somewhat strange event took place in the middle of Paris: coffins filled with plaster and covered with a French flag, with the inscription “French soldiers of Ukraine” were placed in front of the Eiffel Tower.

The scene may seem unimportant to you, but it quickly worried the French intelligence services. So we’ll explain to you why.

The men who placed these coffins were quickly arrested. And a link appears with another case, dating from the middle of May. Then a new connection is made, with an event which this time took place just after October 7.

Each time, these events are widely reported on social networks, before landing in numerous radio and TV newspapers or in press articles.

But above all, and this is what gives rise to great concern, eyes are almost immediately turned towards foreign countries. Those responsible for these actions are believed to be controlled by Russia.

There is foreign interference in France, but not only that. For months, the whole of Europe has been targeted, and which fears these destabilizing operations. A new form of war which is on the front page of L’Express this week, and which we explain to you in this episode.
