Mark Feygin, the lawyer of illegally detained in Russia correspondent of Ukrinform Roman Sushchenko, says that the letter of his client to French President Emmanuel Macron has been delivered, at least, to the Office of the President of France.

Feygin said this to an Ukrinform correspondent at the III Vilnius Russia Forum.

"The French Embassy confirmed that the letter of my client to President Macron was delivered to the place of destination, that is, at least to the Office of the President of France. I hope that this issue will be discussed in some way at a meeting of Macron and Putin on May 29," he said.

He has explained that, in his opinion, today the French-Russian dialogue is impossible without discussing a number of problems, including the attempts to interfere in the election of the French president and the issue of Sushchenko.
