Kremlin rejects claim that Moscow protests are sign of ‘political crisis’
Protests happen all over the world, so it’s wrong to call the recent demonstrations in Moscow a ‘political crisis’, the Kremlin’s spokesperson said. He insisted that police were right to intervene, preventing riots in the city, RT reports.
“We disagree with calling these developments a political crisis,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesperson, Dmitry Peskov, told reporters on Tuesday, adding that anti-government rallies are common in many countries, including European states.
“It’s not a crisis. We see protests going on all over the world,” he said.
