Peskov calls publications about GRU special forces to destabilize Europe “pulp fiction”
The presidential spokesman said the Kremlin is “not interested in this.”
Russian President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on a New York Times report on the GRU’s special forces that are destabilizing the situation in Europe. According to Peskov, the Russian authorities are “in no way” interested in this, RBC reports.
Peskov called the material of the American newspaper “pulp fiction.”
“Such sotries belong to the pulp fiction category. President Putin has repeatedly said that Moscow is interested in building good relations with Europe as a whole and its individual countries. This has been repeatedly said and confirmed,” the spokesman for the president said.
Earlier, NYT reported that Peskov redirected the request for the existence of special forces to the Ministry of Defense which simply did not respond.
The newspaper, citing its sources, reported that intelligence from several Western countries concluded that Russian military unit 29155 was involved in the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal in 2018 and an attempted coup in Montenegro in 2016. The NYT sources claimed that the unit was so secret that even other departments of the GRU did not know about it.
According to Olga Halikova, the lawyer representing the injured party, the girls could have been petrified of punishment for spending too much money. The victims’ defense also intends to challenge Maria Khachaturian’s insanity conclusion.

Russian Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev has approved the dismissal of two police officers “for gross violation of official discipline,” which consisted of checking the so-called department of Nadezhda Grishaeva, the wife of nationalist Liberal Democrats leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky's son, Igor Lebedev, using information systems. It turned out that undeclared property and business of the vice speaker of the State Duma was registered in her name. However, Lebedev’s property is registered not only in his spouse’s name, but also in that of his mother Galina Lebedeva, as well as his close friends. The CrimeRussia found out the ex-basketball player Nadezhda Grishaeva's current affairs, how rich the 70-year-old Galina Lebedeva is, and what her son, 47-year-old parliamentarian Igor Lebedev, is hiding.
The court decision is based on the fact that Montenegro is allegedly not the legal successor of the Union of Serbia and Montenegro and therefore should not be liable for its obligations under the investment protection treaty with the Russian Federation.
