MOSCOW, April 23 (Xinhua) -- The Kremlin has not seen any proof that China hid COVID-19 data, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Thursday.
He made the remarks when asked to comment on a lawsuit against the Chinese government filed on Tuesday by Attorney General of the U.S. State of Missouri Eric Schmitt, which accused China of covering up the danger of the coronavirus and not doing enough to slow its spread.
Peskov noted that the virus is a common challenge for all humanity, the global economy and each country.
He said Russian President Vladimir Putin is convinced that a victory over COVID-19 and a gradual recovery of the global economy require joint and coordinated efforts.
