SOCHI, May 3. / TASS /. The press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov questioned the reliability of the promulgated radio "freedom" statistics of the Service for Citizenship and Immigration of the United States, according to which over the year, Russians submitted more than 2,500 applications for political asylum in the US, which is almost 40% more than a year earlier.
"We do not know how much they (these figures) are reliable. In general, a sea of false information needs to be very carefully adjusted to all figures", – the representative of the Kremlin noted. According to Peskov, it’s impossible to trust such data on the fly.
"No way", – the press secretary answered the question about how the Kremlin evaluates this information.
