"De facto aware of the ban… Mr Christensen, a Danish citizen, continued working in the interests of this organization, promoting it. In this case, we have no right to comment on the decision of the court, which ruled that the organization was extremist. We can only state that that decision was made in June 2016", Peskov told reporters when asked to comment on the verdict.
According to the spokesman, the issue will remain on the agenda.
"There will be work on this issue, but we do not know yet in what way. Of course, this work will take into account the decision of the court which entered force", Peskov said.
When asked whether Jehovah's Witnesses is considered an extremist organization or a religious one from the point of view of common sense, Peskov remarked that the organization's activities were illegal.
On 6 February, Christensen was sentenced to six years in prison because he remained a leader of a local community of the organization after it was officially recognized as extremist in Russia.
