Russia: Putin is 'absolutely correct' — Peskov on Skripal case

Dmitri Peskov, Press Secretary for Russian President Vladimir Putin (Russian): «Yes, this is unprecedented rudeness. The main thing is that no one has ever met with the situation when they accuse the country of something they cannot even formulate. And they do not try to formulate it. We state that this is an unprecedented [situation] which borders with banditry [manners] in international affairs... Еще. What is behind this? [Perhaps] Britain's internal problems or Britain's relationships with their allies or something else. This is probably not our business. Our duty is how to cope with this provocation. Again, I want to tell you that you see that President Putin has absolute calmness and endurance. In contrast to the vis-a-vis on the island, he is absolutely correct. Putin formulated his position — we deal with our internal affairs in the first place. And this is an incident that happened to you with which you must sort out, and then talk about it. That's actually the position of Putin.» 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.
