Deputies in France's National Assembly said they had asked the speaker of the country's lower house of parliament to set up a committee to investigate alleged Russian funding of political parties, Reuters reported.

In their letter, the deputies pointed out that the move was prompted by the declassification of U.S. intelligence data showing that Russia had paid hundreds of millions of euros to foreign political parties in order to influence elections.

Eight members of French President Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance (En Marche) party noted that Marine Le Pen's Rassemblement Nationale party is still repaying a loan provided by Russian banks.

These facts clearly indicate that the Russian side will carry weight in French public debates, the deputies wrote and demanded the creation of a commission that will check whether French political parties have benefited from Russian financing.
