This was stated press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov, reports propaganda online RIA Novosti.
In his opinion, the behavior of the diplomat was “permissible and reasonable”.
“Nothing offensive was said. Indeed, the topics of discussion are very serious in the security Council,” – said Peskov, noting that “the manifestation of the softness in the future is fraught with very dire consequences.”
“It is better to defend the interests of our country today and, if necessary, rather harshly,” – said the press Secretary of Vladimir Putin.
