Peskov does not consider those who were “afraid and did not understand” of the military operation to be enemies of the people

Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for the president, said there were people in Russia who were “scared and did not understand” the military operation in Ukraine and had left the country. In his opinion, they are not enemies of the people. So he commented on the question of what will happen to TV presenters Ksenia Sobchak, Ivan Urgant and Regina Todorenko.

Mr. Peskov said in an interview with Belarus 1 TV channel that “Sobchak, Urgant and Todorenko are not enemies of the state.” The journalist responded by saying that they “made fun of those who defend the state.” “No. Why… Urgant did not ridicule, Sobchak did not ridicule. Todorenko… I do not know, unfortunately. We have people who were scared, when it all started, they were scared. Some of them left. He said I was going on a long vacation. Everyone acted differently. But there are those who were scared and who did not understand. And they are not enemies of the state. I am convinced. We also have hawks who think that everyone should go straight to the nail and so on. Many did not understand, many were scared, “said Mr. Peskov (quoted by BelTA).

A spokesman for the president said he knew “very well” Mr. Urgant and “he is a great patriot.” According to Dmitry Peskov, he may have his own point of view, but he “has no right to broadcast on Channel One.” “It simply came to our notice then. Here, too, there is no need to slander people, no need to write them in the fifth column. By no means, “he added. Mr. Peskov believes that the “lost” should be “guided to the true path if they want to.” “This is my personal point of view,” said the president’s spokesman.

The Kremlin representative believes that there are enemies of the people in the country – “those people who began to harass the government, began to attack our military heroes.” He said they would fight them and they “have no place in public money.”

Earlier in March, President Vladimir Putin said that there was a “fifth column” in the country – those citizens who, in the opinion of the head of state, are ready to do anything to belong to the “highest caste” in Europe and the United States. “The Russian people will always be able to distinguish true patriots from scoundrels and traitors and will simply spit them out like a fly that accidentally flew into their mouths and spit them out on a panel. I am convinced that such a natural and necessary self-purification of society will only strengthen our country, our solidarity, cohesion and readiness to respond to any challenges, “the President said.
