French Senator Christian Cambon said that Germany should allow Russian doctors to work with Alexey Navalny and present the evidence they have that is related to this incident.
The head of the French Senate commission on international affairs, defense, and security said that those who are trying to destabilize the position of Russian President Vladimir Putin may be involved in the situation with Navalny. Cambon believes the incident opens up new opportunities for Russia's enemies. He stressed that overall, this is вЂњnot a very good episode.вЂќ
Earlier, French President Emmanuelle Macron called on Russia to explain the situation with Alexei Navalny. According to Macron, the fact that Navalny was tried to use chemical weapons is beyond doubt. In particular, the French leader pointed out that three European countries вЂ” France, Germany, and Sweden вЂ” had conducted national examinations.
Navalny became ill on August 20 during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. In the first two days, doctors from the Omsk hospital helped him. They also introduced him to an artificial coma. On August 22, the patient was sent to a clinic in Berlin.
On September 2, the German government said that military toxicologists had found traces of a substance from the Novichok group in Navalny's body, and called on the Russian government to respond to this information. Russian doctors noted that they had not identified any poisons. In September, Navalny was brought out of a coma and discharged. Rehabilitation will take several weeks, after which he plans to return to Russia.
