The Kremlin on Monday denied any role in the "yellow vests" movement and stressed that any hint of a role played by Russia in the protests, especially over the Internet, would be a "disgrace."

"We have not intervened and will not interfere in the internal affairs of any country, including France," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters, describing the events as "an internal issue exclusively related to France."

"We respect the sovereignty of France and we are grateful when France responds similarly to us, and any claim of possible participation of Russia is nothing but defamation," Peskov said.
