Biden's statement about Putin inadmissible: Kremlin
Peskov slams the use of photos of Donetsk's destruction and casualties in a video presented by Volodymyr Zelensky during his speech in the US Congress as a "monstrous lie" and "forgery".
The latest statement by US President Joe Biden regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin is inadmissible, according to Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov, who added that the president of a country that attacked other countries has no right to say such things. Following Biden's hysterical name-calling, the Kremlin slammed his rhetoric as unacceptable especially coming from the leader of a country that has killed hundreds of thousands.
On Wednesday, White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked Biden if he is ready to call Putin a "war criminal". The US leader first responded in the negative, but after a pause changed his mind.
"Our president is a very wise and far-sighted and cultured international figure and ... the head of state. Such statements by Biden — I already said yesterday — are impermissible, unacceptable, inexcusable, and most importantly, probably, the head of state, which bombed people all over the world for many years, cannot have the right to make them," Peskov told reporters.
Putin not planning yet trip to operation zone in Ukraine
Putin is not yet planning a trip to the operation zone in Ukraine, Peskov said on Thursday, adding there are no plans for him to meet with fighters in hospitals either.
"I disagree with you in drawing parallels with the Great Patriotic War, it is still about different things. Trips are not planned," Peskov told reporters when asked whether trips of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief to the front are planned, as it was in August 1943 when there was a turning point in the Great Patriotic War.
No comment on possibility of helping Brazil with nuclear submarines
Kremlin Spokesperson Peskov declined to comment on media reports that Russia can assist Brazil in developing a nuclear submarine.
Earlier this week, media reported that, during his visit to Moscow in mid-February, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro asked Russian President Vladimir Putin for assisting in developing a nuclear submarine.
"I will not comment on this question. The negotiations between the two presidents were of a closed nature," Peskov told reporters when asked whether this issue was raised at the meeting in question.
Use of Donetsk photos in video presented by Kiev in US Congress 'forgery'
Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitry Peskov slammed the use of photos of Donetsk's destruction and casualties by foreign news outlets and in a video presented by Volodymyr Zelensky during his speech in the US Congress to illustrate the results of the Russian military operation as a "monstrous lie" and "forgery".
"The facts of such fakes are well known in Russia. To a lesser degree, they want to pay attention [to these fakes] abroad. This is a monstrous lie. This is a monstrous forgery," Peskov told reporters.
