NIZHNI TAGIL, November 25. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes that Russia Supreme Mufti Talgat Tadjuddin was joking when he said that Syria and Israel should enjoy the same kind of treatment as Crimea.
"I’m unable to make any comment on this statement. Honestly, I have no idea what he had in mind," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media.
"Apparently, that was some kind of joke by the Supreme Mufti. It could’ve been nothing but a joke," Peskov said.
