MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. The words of Russian Ambassador to Belarus Alexander Surikov on the alleged deployment of a Russian military base in the Bryansk region to deter Ukraine’s aggression could have been "taken out of context," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.
"I do not rule out that this has been taken out of context. I just have not seen the full text of the statement, I would not like to comment," Peskov said, adding that Russia’s Foreign Ministry or Russia’s Embassy in Belarus could give more details on this.
Some media reports earlier quoted the ambassador as saying that the redeployment of Russia’s additional military units to the town of Klintsy in the Bryansk region near the Russian-Ukrainian border is needed for "prevention." Some journalists suggested that these words of the diplomat confirm the alleged creation of a Russian military base aimed against Ukraine.
