His remarks came after the legislator met with Alexey Pushkov, head of the Russian Lower House of Parliament's International Affairs Committee, at the French National Assembly on Wednesday.
Myard, for his part, stressed that many French legislators, including those from opposition parties, support the Russian government's stance on the Middle East.
"Simply put, we all assess the position of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and we understand that Bashar Assad's army fights Daesh on the ground, while someone plays a double game," Myard said in a clear nod to Turkey.
In this regard, he recalled that Moscow's position on Turkey is clear and that Ankara buying oil from Daesh is something that testifies to Turkey's double standards.
"As for me, I must say that … Ankara, unfortunately, plays the role of 'sorcerer's apprentice' in the region," Myard said.
He was echoed by Pushkov, who earlier underscored a "noticeable shift in the French MPs' understanding the need for a joint action with Russia against Daesh militants."
"I would say that some French MPs are ready to go further than the current French government in their joint Russian-French efforts to combat Daesh," Pushkov said.
