… – Dmitry Sergeevich, there was information that your son served in Wagner, he seemed to confirm this himself. Do you confirm this? And – why not in the conventional armed forces?

This question was raised at the traditional briefing by the official representative of the Kremlin on Monday, April 24.

– Well, he (Nikolai Peskov. – A.G.) served in the Armed Forces at one time, he fulfilled his constitutional duty, – answered Dmitry Peskov. – Now he made such a decision, he is an adult.

Yes, indeed, he took part in a special military operation.

I would not like to say more, it has nothing to do with my work.


We add that Nikolai Peskov served in the Taman division for a year. Was an artilleryman. Demobilized with the rank of sergeant.

The son of Dmitry Peskov spoke about this in an interview with Komsomolskaya Pravda. The conversation was published on the KP.RU website. On Tuesday, April 25, this material will also be published in the regions of Russia.

Here is a snippet of our conversation…

… – Nikolai, how does your father evaluate your service in the NVO zone?

– You know, he… he is proud, I think so. He is… proud. Proud. He told me that I made the right decision.

– Now or then? Or both then and now?

– No, when I returned, he said: you made the right decision, you did the right thing, that you decided to participate.

– Have you already talked with your father, have you seen each other since your arrival?

– Of course, of course.

– Once?

– Well, repeatedly. (Laughs).
