Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitriy Peskov answered journalists’ questions about the agenda in the capital Moscow. Evaluating President Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize at the Organization of Turkic States Extraordinary Summit Meeting held in Ankara yesterday, Peskov said, “Of course, Erdogan’s efforts, his activities for the preservation of peace, his mediation attempts and We highly appreciate his attitude towards the development of Russia-Turkey relations,” he said.


Peskov also reacted to Slovakia and Poland’s decision to send Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine. Emphasizing that NATO members are more involved in the conflict, Peskov said, “This decision is another example of how all NATO countries have increased the level of their direct participation in the conflict.” Stating that they will destroy the weapons made to Ukraine and that only the Ukrainian people suffer from such support, Peskov said, “As we said before, this military equipment support will not affect the outcome of the special military operation. However, these decisions may cause new problems in Ukraine and the Ukrainian people. Of course, as we have said many times before, these military equipment will also be destroyed,” he said.
