“You will solve it on another level”
The presenter of the program Dmitry Nezovtsev introduced himself as an official in the recruiting office and invited Nikolai to come there the next day for a medical examination. Nicholas Schulz replied:
– Aaa, of course I won’t come at ten in the morning tomorrow. If you know that I am Mr. Peskov, then you must understand that it is not right for me to come there. In short, I’ll solve it on another level. I need to know how to handle this properly.
The meaning of “different level” was not answered. Then Choles continued talking about tomorrow, and According to Medusa magazine:
– That I will come at 10 in the morning tomorrow – Believe me, neither you nor I want it. I must first know how to handle this properly… If I have to defend the motherland, I have no problem with that. I need to know how convenient it is for me to end up there. Now I’m talking about some political nuances.
He didn’t want to define the “political differences” around, but said:
– If I have to defend the Motherland, do not worry, I will be with you. But whether or not you come tomorrow is another question.
Later in the broadcast, he was asked directly if he was ready to go as a volunteer soldier to Ukraine:
No, you do not need to check this box. Now listen, I’m ready to go, but not because you’re asking. I will act according to the advice I receive.
Dmitry Peskov confirmed that the presenter had already spoken to the son, but denied that the son had refused to come to the employment agency. According to Peskov, the essential parts of the son’s answer have been omitted.
