Moscow is ready to facilitate efforts to resolve a migrant crisis on the border between Belarus and the European Union, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Rossiya-1’s “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin” show.
“When we hear some statements and accusations against us, I would like to tell everyone: mind your own domestic issues, don’t try to shift them to others because it is your related agencies that need to resolve them. However, we are ready to do our utmost [to help resolve the situation] if there is anything we can do,” Putin said in response to reporter Pavel Zarubin’s questions.
He reiterated that accusations of involvement in the migration crisis against Russia “point to someone’s desire to shift responsibility for the current developments.” “What does our Aeroflot air carrier has to do with it? Did anyone take an Aeroflot flight? I know nothing about it but some people surely could have taken a flight and traveled through third countries. What do we have to do with it?” the Russian president said.
