posting at all hours in the middle of the nigh
Remember, some of us work at night. It's always night and always day somewhere in the world, and post-Covid, people work online with people in different time zones..
Not that your post helps the OP at all.
As I said, check the requirements for France, especially if driving when it's dark, and check (there are a few websites about this) what equipment you need to carry in given countries; certain countries require a warning triangle to be carried. It goes without saying that there needs to be the correct insurance, and it would also be a good idea to carry a document proving ownership of the vehicle, just in case it's stopped.
Plenty of people drive across Europe every day without checking each country's rules, however there's always the danger of being stopped by police, especially if the vehicle is a. Russian plated and b. unusual. It'[s good to be belt and braces careful.
Also, check the situation about crossing the border into Schengen; this can change fairly suddenly right now.
