Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization in his State of the Nation address only yesterday morning, in which mainly men under the age of 35 with previous military experience and no serious health problems will be called up, and there is already overwhelming evidence that this measure will probably not apply those who do meet these criteria, but were born in the “right family”. The British Daily Mail reports that Dmitry Nizostev from the Popular Politics channel, who supports the only relevant Putin opponent, Alexei Navalny, set a trap for the son of the spokesman of the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov , Nikolai. I will solve it on another level, he said. Ukrainska Pravda writes that Nizostev called Nikolayev Peskov live and pretended to be Major Anton Matrynov from the Moscow office and the 32-year-old son of Putin’s spokesman in connection with the declared partial mobilization, and called on him to come the next day at He arrived at the military office at 10:00 because they sent him an invitation both by mail and electronically, but he didn’t bother to answer. However, Nikolai Peskov resolutely rejected this “offer”. “Of course, I will not go there tomorrow at 10:00 AM. If you know that I am Mr. Peskov, you should realize how completely wrong it would be for me to be there. I will solve it on another level. I need to understand in general what is happening and what my rights are. To be drafted tomorrow, believe me, neither you nor I need that. I have no problem defending my homeland, but I have to understand if it is a viable alternative for me to be there, I’m talking about certain political nuances,” he squirmed in a telephone interview. “What an interesting threat. What is the other level?” Nizostev asked promptly in a live broadcast on YouTube. Peskov junior subsequently denied that he had threatened. Nizostev’s next question was about whether he is willing to go to the front as a volunteer. “No, don’t check that box for me. I am ready to go, but not at your request: if Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin tells me to go there, I will go,” added Peskov junior. After the publication of this video, according to the Daily Mail, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov himself also commented on the whole matter, saying that he wants the publication of the entire transcript of this telephone conversation, on the basis of which he expressed his belief that his son would be vindicated. With a criminal record, he enjoys the high life Who is Nikolai Peskov? The Times notes that Nikolay Peskov, or Choles, comes from Dmitry Peskov’s first marriage, and in the 1990s he and his mother moved to Britain, where he later took the name of his stepfather. In 2010, he was sentenced for bodily harm to 15 months in Juvenile institutions. Choles, who had a previous conviction for stealing a mobile phone, admitted to the court that he had punched the 18-year-old victim in the face. In 2011, he returned to Russia and worked as a journalist for Russia Today, which is among the loudest spreaders of pro-Kremlin propaganda. As recently as 2017, Navalny pointed out how it was possible for a 27-year-old man, who at that time was unemployed for a long time, to be able to afford travel in private planes, a fleet of cars, including a Tesla, which at the time cost more than 130- thousand euros. “He doesn’t work anywhere, but buys apartments, Range Rovers, Ferraris and spends his days traveling and riding horses. We know what his profession is called: the son of a corrupt father,” Navalny, the main representative of the Russian opposition, wrote at the time. Thanks for reading Startitup.
