Correspondent of RT France broadcaster Lucas Leger said on Saturday that he was injured in Paris during attempts by French police to disperse participants of the so-called yellow vest protests against the increase in fuel prices.
"I was injured by a police shot," Leger said on Twitter, posting a photo of his face with a wound on his cheek.
RT France Director Xenia Fedorova said the journalist was receiving necessary medical assistance.
According to Fedorova, two RT France journalists were injured.
"This morning, two RT France journalists were injured by a police tear grenade, and by a Flash-ball non-lethal pistol on the Champs-Elysees in Paris. Lucas Leger has sustained a jaw injury, he is currently in hospital. We have managed to talk to him, and he has assured us that his state was stable. Our shooting teams are showing bravery and high professionalism," Fedorova said in a statement published on the RT official website.
