MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Peskov said that questions on the alleged detention of Russian soldiers in Ukraine should be addressed to the Russian Defense Ministry, not the Kremlin.
"Of course I cannot confirm this because I’m not the one who should be asked this question. We along with the Defense Ministry have repeatedly said that there are no Russian soldiers in Donbass."
"I cannot comment on these reports, but I think that specialists or our Defense Ministry in this case would do it better in order to establish how reliable this information is," the Kremlin spokesman told journalists.
Russian authorities have repeatedly rejected Kiev’s claims that Russian troops are allegedly fighting alongside pro-independence forces in Ukraine’s eastern Donbass region.
