German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak watched Russian President Vladimir Putin’s interview with American journalist Tucker Carlson, which means they heard Russia’s position, Putin’s press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
The press secretary of the head of state, answering a question from journalists about how the Kremlin regarded the statements of Scholz and Sunak, noted that their emotional words about the interview were only an attempt to justify themselves to the taxpayers of their countries.
“Apparently they are familiar with the content of the interview. This is the main thing for us. They, as heads of state, already had the opportunity to constantly get acquainted with the position of President Putin. Now it is fully represented. They took advantage of this. And their emotional statements are an attempt to explain themselves to taxpayers,” Peskov said.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that Scholz “disobeyed the US order” and watched Putin’s interview, calling it “absurd.”
Sunak made similar remarks. At the same time, politicians shared their opinion only at a joint briefing with US President Joe Biden.
