Kremlin counts on Europe’s political logic and wisdom in Skripal case
The Kremlin counts on the elementary political logic and wisdom of European countries, if British Prime Minister Theresa May tries to persuade them to take measures against Russia over the so-called Skripal case.
"Anyway, we do count on the elementary political logic and wisdom of our counterparts in that case," Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, TASS reports.
"We note the continuation of the hard-to-explain line of the British side. We continue to note Britain’s reluctance to actually interact to investigate this incident [involving former Russian military intelligence Colonel Sergei Skripal convicted of spying in Russia] to establish in reality who can be behind it," the Kremlin spokesman stressed. He also noted, "We continue to note Britain’s reluctance to provide at least some information and also take note that all statements made on that score are totally unsubstantiated, lack any evidence and are often devoid of elementary logic."
"We do hope, of course, that all these aspects will be taken into account by Britain’s partners, at the very least," Peskov said.
Speaking about Russia-EU relations, the Kremlin spokesman called them "rather complicated as they are."
