Russian court made "huge mistake" in jailing Navalny - Macron

- A Russian court's sentencing this week of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny to three and a half years in prison was a "huge mistake" for the country's stability, French President Emannuel Macron said on Thursday.

"I think this was a huge mistake even for Russian stability," Macron said of the court decision during an online forum sponsored by the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based thinktank.
