OREANDA-NEWS. The French newspaper Figaro reported that analyzes of Russian opposition politician Aleksey Navalny were checked in a laboratory in Boucher in the department of Essonne in the north of the central part of France. It is included in the list of laboratories accredited by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.

Earlier, Spiegel reported that Navalny’s analyzes were also studied by the Bundeswehr center located in Munich.

“Paris, which also carried out examinations in the ultra-secure laboratory at Boucher in Essonne, managed by the Directorate General of Armaments, achieved the same result,” Figaro wrote. “We ran tests that confirmed the use of a neurotoxic substance,” a representative of the French Defense Ministry told reporters.

Earlier, the press service of the Ministry of Defense of France confirmed that “the French military laboratory took part in analyzes,” but did not specify its name.
