None of the 12 candidates won over 50% of the vote in the recent (4/10/22) election for Presidency of France.

So the top 2 vote getters, Emmanuel Macron, a centrist, and Marine Le Pen, with far right leanings, will face each other in a runoff on 4/24/22.

Given their stark political differences, one can be reasonably sure the Russians take more than a little interest in the outcome.
