This depicts the Russian government offering unlimited campaign contributions to a candidate for the presidency of France in exchange for favors once he is elected. French elections are tightly regulated; the amount of money candidates can receive from private contributors is strictly limited and the total budget for a presidential campaign is limited to 20 million euros. TV advertising, the primary expense for national candidates in the U.S., is forbidden in French presidential elections; instead each candidate receives free TV air time. The Russians are accused of trying to influence the most recent real-life French presidential elections, but the allegation isn't that they offered large amounts of money to the candidate they wanted to win; it's that they leaked, and possibly forged, damaging information about the candidate they wanted to lose.
