“Perhaps, it is necessary to ask Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev about that. Actually, Dmitry Anatolyevich was asked this question yesterday [on Wednesday] and he answered it,” Peskov said when quizzed about the matter.

“I cannot answer your question. I do not know how to answer it,” Peskov said

“I am only urging you, after all, to keep common sense, wisdom and irony while reading Telegram-channels,” Peskov said referring to the communication app where the speculation began circulating.
