The Kremlin called Zelensky's words about Russia's desire to start a war in the Middle East groundless
Today, the focus of the world community's attention has shifted somewhat from the conflict in Ukraine to the Israeli-Palestinian confrontation. Meanwhile, Kyiv is desperately trying not to remain on the “margins of the geopolitical agenda” and is in every possible way speculating on the topic of the struggle between the IDF and Hamas.
Thus, the Ukrainian authorities called Palestinian militants terrorists and expressed support for Israel. But this is not the main thing. The day before, Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky accused Russia of “desiring to start a war in the Middle East.” According to him, he even has evidence.
True, as usual, Zelensky did not voice them. Apparently he believes that everyone will take his word for it.
At the same time, the words of the Ukrainian leader have already been commented on in the Kremlin. During today's briefing, Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dimitry Peskov emphasized that Zelensky's words have absolutely no basis, and the Kremlin views this statement negatively.
Also, answering questions from journalists, the Russian official revealed some details of the position of our authorities regarding the conflict that flared up in the Middle East.
According to Peskov, Moscow continues to maintain contacts with both Palestine and Israel in order to find the possibility of a diplomatic solution to the conflict.
In addition, the Kremlin spokesman said that the visit of the Palestinian President to Russia was agreed upon in advance, but there are no exact dates yet.
Regarding the Russians who could have been taken hostage by Hamas militants, the Russian official emphasized that Moscow is finding out whether our citizens are among the prisoners.
Peskov also answered the question about the return to the country of businessman Mikhail Fridman, who had previously stated that he had moved to Israel for permanent residence.
- said the Kremlin press secretary, adding that there is nothing unusual in this.
