MOSCOW, January 28. /TASS/. The Kremlin sees no need for making any comments regarding the Ukrainian delegation’s intention to initiate a discussion in the UN Security Council over Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent statements about the past of Donbass.
"We have no attitude to this at all," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, when asked about the Kremlin’s attitude to this idea.
Kiev’s angry reaction followed shortly after Putin at a meeting of the inter-regional forum of the All-Russia People’s Front on January 25 dropped a remark on Vladimir Lenin’s nationalities policy. Putin said that when the Soviet Union was established, the administrative borders separating republics were drawn arbitrarily and quite often unreasonably. He recalled that the coal-mining and industrial area Donbass had been handed over to Ukraine for the sake of increasing the percentage of the working class in Ukraine’s population.
The press-service of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry quoted Ukraine’s UN envoy as saying it was "impermissible to rewrite history and call in question the territorial integrity, sovereignty and political independence of Ukraine."
