The Kremlin has described the BBC's film as a low-quality product

The Kremlin has described the BBC's film 'World War Three: Inside the War Room' as a low-quality product that is not worth the time it takes to watch.

"Unfortunately, our colleagues from the BBC have lately resorted to making public products, of quite low-quality. Therefore, we haven't always been in a hurry to familiarize ourselves with them," Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists when asked whether the Kremlin has seen the film, which simulates Russia's invasion of Latvia, and an ensuing nuclear conflict.

"It's simply not worth the time it takes to watch," Peskov said, noting that not only Russian experts, but also some in the United Kingdom and other countries, share in this opinion.

"Unfortunately, the quality of this material is far from a commonly acknowledged world level, which this wonderful corporation [the BBC] has always demonstrated," he said.
