The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov commented on the statement of the head of state Vladimir Putin about the opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
“The president did not specify specific employees who look after people like the Berlin patient. He did not talk about it, no need to juggle. Specific statements are needed here, ”Peskov said.
This is how a Kremlin spokesman answered a question from journalists about how the president assessed the work of the Federal Security Service in light of the disclosure of the identities of its employees, who allegedly looked after Navalny.
At his traditional big press conference, the Russian leader commented on publications about the surveillance of Navalny and his alleged poisoning. Vladimir Putin said that “this patient in a Berlin clinic” is supported by the US intelligence services.
“If this is so, then it’s interesting, then the special services, of course, should look after him. But this does not mean at all that it is necessary to poison him. Who needs it, ”- added the President of the Russian Federation.
