The Kremlin is very concerned over the situation in Turkey, but cannot give a “clear definition” of the events unfolding in the country right now, Peskov said.
“Currently, the amount of information makes it impossible to give a clear definition of what is happening in the country," he stated.
"Turkey is a very important regional power,” he said. “With no doubt the situation in Turkey has a direct impact on the situation in the region. In this regard, we are all interested in the quickest resolution of the situation Turkey legitimately, and the country returned to the path of stability and predictability, the rule of law."
Peskov stressed that Moscow’s major priority at the moment is to provide for the security of Russian citizens in the country. There has been no information on any Russian citizens being hurt during the attempted military coup in Turkey, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.
He also noted that a possibility of granting Erdogan asylum would be discussed if a respective request was filed.
