MOSCOW, April 16. /ITAR-TASS/. European readers and TV viewers cannot fully assess the situation in Ukraine because they have no free choice of information, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the Vesti 24 television channel on Wednesday, April 16.
“It’s very regrettable but it’s so,” he said and stressed that even the activity of Russian politicians such as President Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and lawmakers who are trying to dispel rumors or dismiss accusations “comes across the concrete wall of censorship”.
“Explanations do not get through not because they are inadequate, but on the contrary, because they are very consistent and well substantiated. They do not get through because they come across the concrete wall of censorship. We never saw anything like this before. We never thought this could happen and that it could happen so openly,” Peskov said.
