Kremlin: Moscow can respond to London’s actions at any time
Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has assured that Moscow’s retaliatory measures in response to London’s actions over the Skripal case can follow at any moment.
"[They] can be expected at any moment," the Kremlin spokesman said answering reporters’ questions.
"[Retaliatory measures] will not be long in coming," Peskov promised. He stressed that "all steps, will, course, be well thought-out and will fully meet our country’s interests."
The measures Great Britain has taken against Russia are a violation of international law and a breach of common sense, he Kremlin spokesman added.
"The Kremlin is indeed surprised," he said. "Honestly speaking, we have never encountered such behavior on the international stage, when serious accusations are made against a country - our country in this particular case - but words used include ‘highly likely’ and so on," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
According to him, "it is not only a violation of international law but also a breach of common sense." "This is the reason why we are surprised," Peskov noted.
