Later in the interview, Peskov repeated the lies of Russian propaganda. When asked if he could sleep peacefully at night when he saw pictures showing dead Ukrainian civilians, he replied: It’s not really about sleeping at night. It’s rather a matter of that The Ukrainian army uses civilians as human shields.
He also stated that the Russians use precision munitions and do not attack civilian objects. He also expressed his hope that Russia will achieve its goals in the coming days or that the negotiation process between the two parties will advance.
He also referred to the activities of NATO. NATO is not a peaceful alliance. It seeks confrontation and the primary purpose of its existence is to confront another state – He argued.
