MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin has dismissed allegations of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko that Russia’s authorities are discriminating Crimean Tatars on the Black Sea peninsula.
"As for any possible words on Crimean Tatars, if it is unfounded criticism or accusations, then it will remain unfounded criticism," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Monday.
Peskov commented on Poroshenko’s promise in an interview with Ukraine’s media outlets to raise the issue of "discrimination against Crimean Tatars" at the UN General Assembly’s session.
"As a rule, everything that we’ve heard before has no grounds and does not absolutely reflect the real state of events in Crimea," Peskov stressed, adding that it is not his job to "forecast the speeches of other heads of state."
Poroshenko is expected to address the UN General Assembly on September 29.
