MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia is concerned over turbulence in Turkey, Armenia and Kazakhstan.

"Giving similar assessments to events happening in our neighboring countries is hardly possible, because, of course, you need to analyze each particular case. In one case there is a clear attempt to seize power that has led to numerous casualties, in another there are various criminal incidents," Peskov said, answering a question on a possible link between recent events in Turkey, Armenia and Kazakhstan.

"Of course, such turbulence near our borders causes concern. Of course, this creates a need to closely monitor and analyze the situation. The safety of our country and its borders are ensured at an appropriate level, but, of course, considering the latest information, necessary measures are being taken," he added.
