The Kremlin criticizes Britain’s decision to allow Ukraine to use UK-sourced weapons for attacks on Russian territory

MOSCOW

The Kremlin spokesman criticized Britain’s decision to allow Ukraine to use UK-sourced weapons for attacks on Russian territory on Wednesday.

Speaking at a press conference in Moscow, Dmitry Peskov described the announcement by British Prime Minister Keir Starmer as an “absolutely irresponsible step”.

“If this is the case, then of course this is another irresponsible step towards increasing tensions and seriously escalating the situation. We will closely monitor this and, of course, take appropriate measures,” he said.

Peskov said Russia is working to ensure security in regions bordering Ukraine, which suffer the most from Kiev’s strikes, but the scale of the task requires time.

“The implementation of this task is time-consuming. Work is ongoing in this direction,” he stressed.

Commenting on Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Russia and his talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Peskov said that no discussions with delegations took place as all issues were raised during the talks in a narrow format.

“The narrow format was quite extensive. The heads of almost all the main areas of cooperation were represented. We sat for more than 2.5 hours in the narrow format, followed by further discussions for over half an hour. In total, the talks lasted more than 3 hours,” he noted .

When asked about the participation of Russian athletes in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, Peskov said that it is up to them to decide whether they want to participate in the competition or not.

Addressing the results of a public poll showing that 80% of Russians trust Putin, the spokesman said: “This is mainly due to the hard, responsible work that the president does every day.”
