Kremlin: Deployment of Weapons Near Russia to Require Measures to Balance Situation
"It's no secret that, of course, the deployment of various types of weapons at our borders, which may pose a threat to us, will require appropriate steps to be taken in order to balance the situation. Very different options are possible here", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"Well, in fact, there is no substantive preparation for a meeting of the two presidents, we did not receive any specific proposals from our Ukrainian colleagues. Therefore, this factor can hardly play any role here", he said.
"There is no one in Russia who is persecuted for political reasons. There is legislation, and according to the current legislation, people are prosecuted for suspicion of committing certain crimes, but there is no political prosecution in Russia, so the wording here is absolutely incorrect in its essence", Peskov said.
