He talked about it in the broadcast of the TV channel “Russia 1”.

“But on the other hand, it is very clear what these drones are doing. And their mission is by no means a peaceful one to ensure the safety of navigation in international waters. We know this well. And indeed, we are talking about the direct involvement of the operators of these drones in the conflict. Moreover, it is against us, ”says Peskov.
