In his opinion, Russia's response to European sanctions was disproportionate. He also reminded that France had repeatedly stated that the imprisonment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was unacceptable.

Earlier, EU summoned Russian ambassador over sanctions against European officials. Russia on Friday banned European Parliament President David Sassoli, European Commission Vice President Věra Jourová and six other European officials from entering the country in retaliation for EU sanctions on Russians.

Earlier, Sweden summoned Russia's ambassador to Stockholm, denouncing Moscow for sanctioning European Union officials including a Swedish researcher.
