MOSCOW, Russia – Vladimir Putin’s Press Secretary Dmitri Peskov described British behaviour on double-agent Sergey Skripal’s poisoning case as “unprecedented rudeness” during an interview in Moscow on Sunday.
Peskov went on to say that the Great Britain accuses Russia of something it “cannot even formulate”.
“This is an unprecedented [situation] which borders with banditry [manners] in international affairs,” Peskov stated.
According to Peskov, such behaviour could be caused by “Britain’s internal problems or Britain’s relationships with their allies or something else,” adding “this is probably not our business.”
The Kremlin spokesperson noted that Russia’s “duty is how to cope with this provocation.” Peskov said that Putin remains “absolutely correct” unlike his “vis-a-vis on the island,” adding that “an incident” happened in Great Britain and the country “must sort it out, and then talk about it.”
“That’s actually the position of Putin,” Peskov concluded.
