Russian President Vladimir Putin granted an audience to French far-right party leader Marine Le Pen in the Kremlin on Friday, bestowing a level of worldwide recognition that has so far eluded her in the countdown to France's presidential election.
Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, also told the Reuters news agency on Friday that Putin and Le Pen did not discuss financial aid.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said Kremlin is not seeking to influence the presidential race in France, but has the right to meet with representatives of the country's political parties.

Russia's Vladimir Putin has treated France's Marine Le Pen as if she was already the next president of France, a month before the French people vote. He said the campaign registered thousands of attempted attacks from an IP address in Ukraine suspected to be part of a coordinated campaign from Russian Federation.
Ms Le Pen has made multiple trips to Russia and often met Russian legislators.
Friday's encounter lasted an hour and a half, Le Pen advisor Ludovic de Danne wrote on Twitter.
In addition, Marine Le Pen spoke about the stupidity of sanctions imposed on Russian Federation.
"I believe that the ban preventing members of parliaments from meeting each other and working together is a violation of democratic rights and freedoms", Le Pen said, adding that the blacklists of Russian citizens still remained in effect largely under pressure from Brussels.
Russian Federation appeared to switch its support from Le Pen to Francois Fillon when he emerged as the Republicans' contender for the French presidency, with Putin telling reporters at talks in November that they had "very good" relations.
She said that she had her "own viewpoint on Ukraine, [which is] identical to Russia's".
"This is why we need to join our efforts regarding the strategic actions at the global level in order to help with the development of this region", Le Pen added.

"My stance has remained unchanged ever since the conflict began", Le Pen said.
