MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and the European Union did not and do not engage in the tug-of-war over the current situation in Ukraine, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
“Russia and the EU did not and do not engage in any tug-of-war. It is very important to understand it,” he said in an interview with the TV channel Rossiya-24 in reply to the question about the situation in Ukraine and its coverage by Russian media.
“I believe that our Ukrainian partners surely have excessive emotions,” Peskov said, adding that they “are unfortunately fueled up by different guests, who are going about on Independence Square.” In his view, an upsurge of emotions could have resulted in the conclusions about alleged lack of fair coverage of the events in Ukraine, “When someone cannot cope with his or her emotions, they can draw such conclusions, which are far from being named objective.
