The accusations of Moscow by the British authorities in the poisoning of Skripals is a provocation bordering on banditry, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
This rudeness is unprecedented, stressed Peskov. Britain is trying to solve some of its internal problems, but the Kremlin remains calm. The more hysteria, the more apparent lies become.
Peskov added that the president of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin remains is calm, and references only facts, unlike the British authorities. He immediately formulated his position: Russia is engaged in its own affairs, the United Kingdom in its own agenda – only on a level playing field, when the British side offers some kind of evidence, then talks can begin.
