    Moscow has slammed the latest French publication of a Charlie Hebdo cartoon illustrating the Russian A321 passenger jet crash over Sinai, calling it an “abomination,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – When asked if Moscow has any plans on addressing Paris for an explanation, Peskov responded negatively, saying "No, we won’t."

    "In our country we have a very loud word for this – blasphemy. This has nothing to do with democracy, self-expression, nothing to do with anything – this is an abomination," Peskov told journalists. 

    Peskov said that he and his staff had "dug around" trying to find cartoons of Charlie Hebdo employees who were shot by terrorists in Paris, but said they could not find any.

    "If they were published, then that is also an abomination, at least that’s how we see it in our country," Peskov added. 

    Charlie Hebdo is known for publishing controversial caricatures. On January 7, the Paris office of the magazine was attacked by Islamist gunmen who killed 12 people and wounded 11 after Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

      Why is a predominately Jewish/Zionist "Der Sturmer"-like magazine doing this and why in the name of France and every Frenchman, Jew or gentile ? Why the cowardliness? Why not call it "Schlomo Hebdo"?

      Why does the French put up with it?

      Charlie Hebdo was in deficit.
      The pranksters took advantage of the tragedy of 7th January to earn some money, but nobody likes that magazine and I know that it is in deficit again.
      Is it still open? Bad luck...

      Peskov is wrong. He should have called the moron who calls himself French "Ambassador", and thrown out 3 French diplomats from the Embassy, within 24 hours.

      Extend the ban on French food products to EVERYTHING their scum nation produces. KICK THESE FRENCH SCUM OUT OF EUROPE.
