MOSCOW, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The West should not treat Russia as a naughty schoolchild, Russian president’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
“They should not treat Russia as a naughty schoolgirl who is being poked with a piece of paper on which she must tick off a report on her homework. It is impossible,” he told the Rossiya 1 TV channel.
He added that Kremlin called the position of the West on Ukraine a “hypocrisy fair.”
“The international law has never seen a bigger hypocrisy, neither has Putin. Russia is a country which seeks dialogue with all world nations. Russia is a country which is interested in mutually beneficial cooperation and its goals are quite understandable - to raise the wellbeing of its people,” Peskov told.
“In this case, around the New Year we came to face, rephrasing world literature classics, not a vanity fair but a hypocrisy fair. What happened in Ukraine was an armed coup, which was promptly recognized as legitimate, and it was recognized as legitimate by the legitimate European Union and the United States,” he noted.
He reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had spoken about such hypocrisy at a Munich security conference as far back as 2007. “I his speech, which had no shade of confrontation, he spoke about this, he warned the world community about such situations,” Peskov said. “Regrettably, the situation developed this way and the Russian president took the decision he must take (Crimea’s reunification with Russia).
