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.
