MOSCOW, June 2./TASS/. The Kremlin calls absurd the very wording of statements alleging that Russia is reinforcing its contingent on the border with Belarus, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"It would be a strong exaggeration to speak about the strengthening of some alignment of forces on the border with Belarus, the very presentation of the problem as ‘strengthening on the border with Belarus’ seems absurd to me," Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
He said Russian Defense Ministry officials "will be able to explain movement of this units or the other". Peskov admitted that he knew nothing about reports about beefing up of Russian armed forces on the border with Belarus.
Some media outlets reported earlier that the 28th separate motor rifle brigade had been moved from Yekaterinburg (in the Urals) to the Bryansk region for permanent stationing. The source of these reports is a group of volunteers that was investigating into the situation in Crimea, Donbass and Syria, and which draws conclusions on redeployment of troops on the basis of analyzing social networking systems.
