Peskov did not appear in public for three weeks after making a scandalous statement about the Russian elections: Sobchak says where he disappeared and what happened
Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov has not been seen in public for three weeks. It is noteworthy that his disappearance occurred immediately after the release of a scandalous statement to journalists.
However, TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak said that Peskov had allegedly gone on holiday. She wrote about this on her Telegram channel.
Sobchak said that the press secretary of Kremlin dictator Vladimir Putin had gone on holiday. She also added that Peskov would return in two days.
"Calm down. Peskov is on holiday. He said he would return in two days," Sobchak said.
It is worth noting that Peskov stopped appearing in public after a briefing at which he explained the whole essence of the presidential election in Russia. In particular, Putin's spokesperson said that "presidential elections are not a true democracy, but an expensive bureaucracy".
Peskov added that Putin would be re-elected next year with over 90% of the vote. However, on the same day, Peskov claimed that an American journalist had misrepresented his words.
"Elections are a democracy, the president himself said so in his address. Although, on the other hand, they cost a lot of money, it was clear in advance that Putin would be re-elected with a huge advantage. That's what I was talking about," Peskov defended himself.
As a reminder, Peskov said that dictator Vladimir Putin has a chance to win 90% of the electoral vote in the next presidential election. According to him, Russian democracy has long since taken on a new form.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, Russia does claim that Putin's rating has allegedly only increased since the mutiny of Wagner PMC financier Yevgeny Prigozhin. They even mention a figure of 90%.
