Peskov did not comment on the statements of the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov about non-systemic opposition, he urged careful reading of the words of Chechen leader. “As for his (Kadyrov’s) statements about non-systemic opposition, in General, let us consider that we are talking about non-system opposition – those who are outside the legitimate political field of the country. It is those who in their activities do not remain within the law and ready to go, including to the detriment of the country,” he said.
“No need to escalate, you just need to read said calmly,” – said the representative of the Kremlin.
