Issued on: Modified:
INTERNATIONAL PAPERS - Monday, March 19, 2018: Russian papers hail the victory of Vladimir Putin in an election the Nezavisimaya Gazeta says "recalled the enthusiasm of the Soviet era." An enthusiasm Russia has the UK to thank for, according to Izvestia, which writes that the UK-Russia spy scandal helped boost patriotic zeal. We also look at the "climate of civil war" on the French island of Mayotte, and an Indian publisher that's under fire for listing Hitler as an "inspirational leader."
