Kremlin says some ‘people are losing it’ to explain US senator’s call to ‘take out’ Putin

Dmitry Peskov said that "not everybody is able to keep a cool head"

MOSCOW, March 4. /TASS/. Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the call by US Senator Lindsey Graham to assassinate Russian President Vladimir Putin by saying that many people go insane during bouts of hatred toward Russia.

"Unfortunately, in a situation that’s extremely tense, especially in such countries as the US, hatred toward Russia is escalated hysterically and off the charts," he told reporters on Friday. "It’s hard to pick the right words in a situation like this."

"Of course, not everybody is able to keep a cool head, or be in their right mind these days, so many people unfortunately are losing it," he said.
