Moscow (Russia) Oct 09: There is no political aspect to courts' verdicts in cases related to the summer's protest rallies, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
When asked if the Kremlin saw a political aspect to the verdicts, he answered in the negative. "You know, we don't comment on them. There is and can be no political aspect," Peskov pointed out.
Levada Center earlier issued a poll saying that 38% of respondents considered the sentences handed to Moscow protesters to be unfair and politically motivated. At the same time, 24% of those surveyed believe the verdicts to be impartial and fair.
