France called the leak of the telephone conversation between the two leaders unacceptable but did not refute the facts stated in the publication.
The French authorities are investigating the publication in the media of data on a telephone conversation between Presidents of France and Russia Emmanuel Macron and Vladimir Putin. This was announced on Thursday, September 24, by a representative of the French Foreign Ministry.
вЂњAny leak of internal confidential documents is unacceptable. For this reason, we refrain from commenting. An investigation is underway,вЂќ the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
We are talking about the details of a confidential conversation between the leaders about the situation with the alleged poisoning of Russian blogger Alexei Navalny, published by the Le Monde newspaper on September 22.
The publication in Le Monde about this conversation became resonant. The publication did not specify where it received information about the content of the presidents' conversation, which it described as вЂњa conversation of the deaf.вЂќ
According to Le Monde, on September 14 Putin voiced to Makron several versions of the poisoning of Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny, including the one that aroused the greatest interest. According to the head of the Russian Federation, Navalny himself could have accepted the вЂњBeginnerвЂќ for an unknown reason.
