French President Emmanuel Macron said that conclusions on the situation with blogger Alexei Navalny would be made on the basis of information provided by Russia. He announced this during a press conference with his Lithuanian counterpart Gitanas Nauseda.

Emmanuel Macron noted that in the situation with Navalny, we are talking about an assassination attempt made on the territory of Russia against its oppositionist. For the poisoning, according to the French leader, the Russian chemical Novichok was used.

Macron drew attention to the fact that as soon as the technical work is completed, conclusions will be made at the OPCW level. The French President stressed that from this moment they will need to take adequate measures, namely, demand an explanation from Russia, RIA Novosti reports.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out inconsistencies in the situation with Navalny. The department noted that from the very beginning, Berlin's actions were so well-oiled that it caused a lot of questions.
