The team of French presidential candidate Francois Fillon called rumors of an alleged Russian interference in the French presidential election “nonsense,” Danielle Pesquelle from Fillon’s team told Sputnik on Sunday.
“I think Fillon was pressured from all sides, especially, from the mainstream media, which supports Macron. Russia’s interference is a rumor, we don’t think so at all. I don’t think [Russian President Vladimir] Putin interfered into the election. It is nonsense. You have the proof this evening as Fillon is behind [Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron],” Pesquelle said.
