SHAFAQNA – Russian presidential spokesperson said Western media reports of alleged Russian threat to the Baltic states was “a classic example of the continuing hysteria in demonizing” Moscow.
Western media reports of Russian alleged threats to use nuclear weapons in the Baltics is a clear example of ongoing hysteria in demonizing Russia, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.
“This is a classic example of the continuing hysteria in demonizing our country, that is they are literally twisting the situation around themselves in their information plans, while not even being guided by any fundamental information, then they get scared over what they wrote,” Peskov told journalists in Moscow.
He added that “such publications shouldn’t be taken seriously.”
Kremlin spokesman has also denied Russia had threatened the West with nuclear weapons over the protection of the Crimean Peninsula.
“Of course not,” Peskov told journalists in response to a question of Russia’s apparent threat of using nuclear arms to protect Crimea.
