The Russian President’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the news that the British Parliament Defence Committee demanded extension of anti-Russian sanctions due to its annexation of Crimea and Russian military intervention in the east of Ukraine.

Russian authorities say they cannot agree with the report of the UK Parliament Defense Committee that insists on toughening the anti-Russian sanctions because of the annexation of Crimea and the war in the Donbass, which threaten European security.

This was announced by the Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

'We don’t agree with the words. We cannot understand such expressions as 'annexation of Crimea', we cannot agree with them. From our point of view, the statement about the south-east of Ukraine also is incorrect,' Peskov mentioned.

According to him, the alliance provokes tension on the European continent itself.

'As for NATO, it is difficult to say what role in deterrence NATO plays. We always say that, the tendency of NATO’s expansion, NATO's expansionist policy just stresses the aggressive nature of this organization,' he said.

As reported earlier by, Putin: Kremlin has nothing to do with the results of UK referendum on EU membership.
