Cheney attacks on Russia "incomprehensible"-Kremlin

Written by: Staff

MOSCOW, May 4 (Reuters) The Kremlin today rejected as ''completely incomprehensible'' remarks by US Vice President Dick Cheney that Russia was backsliding on democracy and using its vast energy supplies to bully its neighbours.

''The speech of Mr Cheney in our opinion is full of a subjective evaluation of us and of the processes that are going on in Russia. The remarks ... are completely incomprehensible for us,'' said Kremlin deputy spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

Cheney, in remarks that could cause tense moments when Russian President Vladimir Putin hosts his first summit of the G8 industrialised nations in July, earlier told Baltic and Black Sea leaders in Vilnius that Moscow should return to the path of democratic reform.
