“In April don’t uncover yourself by a thread. » The famous saying is very useful to the inhabitants of the west of France. Météo-France placed Finistère on orange alert on Monday for the risk of waves-submersion. The Breton department is joined this Tuesday by six other territories: Manche, Ille-et-Vilaine, Côtes-d’Armor, Seine-Maritime, Somme and Pas-de-Calais.

In addition, Seine-Maritime, Eure, Charente-Maritime, Gironde and Pyrénées-Atlantiques are placed on orange alert for the risk of flooding.

The macabre puzzle is completed in Haut-Vernet, in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence. A new bone fragment of little Emile, the boy who disappeared on July 8, was discovered near the place where his skull and then his clothes were found around ten days ago, Jean-Luc Blachon confirmed Monday evening , the public prosecutor of Aix-en-Provence.

The expert notes in particular the “demographic thickness” of Russia and the ramp-up of its arms industry. “We are in a critical situation,” he warns.

Colonel and historian Michel Goya is more measured: “Ukrainians necessarily dramatize this type of situation [pour accélérer l’arrivée de l’aide occidentale] but they do not necessarily have concrete elements to know whether there will be a major offensive or not. »
