    Anti-globalist demonstrations during the G20 summit in the German city of Hamburg did not interfere with the international event, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Peskov added that he did not understand the clear position of protesters and regarded it simply as acts of hooliganism.

    "It did not hinder the summit at all. It is not an irony. Similar hooliganism does occur," Peskov told Rossiya 1 broadcaster.
