Kremlin comments on claims of Russia’s alleged involvement in yellow vests rallies
Claims of Russia’s alleged involvement in the French protests are nothing but slander, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
"Any statements about Russia’s alleged involvement are nothing but slander," the Kremlin spokesman stressed when asked to comment on media reports about alleged foreign involvement in the Yellow Vest protests in France.
Peskov stressed that "Russia considers these developments to be France’s domestic affair." "We have never interfered in the domestic affairs of other countries, including France, as we place much importance on the development of bilateral relations and both countries have been working rather hard to that end," the spokesman noted.
He also pointed out that Russia respected France’s sovereignty. "We are grateful when France responds in kind," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
