MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov says he knows nothing about orders to organize protests against terrorism on April 8 that the Kremlin allegedly gave regional authorities.
"I know nothing about such orders, besides, there is no need for them," Peskov told reporters. He stressed that it was the first time he heard about some signals the Kremlin sent to regional authorities.
The presidential spokesman added that "the Kremlin does not organize protests" so it was difficult for him to say if such protests could take place in Russia’s regions and who could organize them. Peskov also said that the Russian people had been feeling united by their determination to oppose terrorism.
"Society has been strengthening and people have been expressing solidarity with each other these days," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"This is happening not only in St. Petersburg but all over the country, which is a nice thing to see," Peskov added.
