The information released by Naryshkin is "a further example of the systematic use of mass disinformation by Russia," according to the French Ministry of Defense.

The department called for "utmost vigilance" to prevent the use of such campaigns as a tool.

Previously, Naryshkin told TASS propagandists that Russia had information about France's preparation of a military contingent for dispatch to Ukraine.

He claimed that the initial number of French soldiers for this purpose would be about 2,000.

The invaders did not provide any additional evidence, other than Naryshkin's words.
