MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov refused to comment on Tuesday on former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev’s statement that a new union can be established in the former USSR borders.
"This is Gorbachev’s point of view, I am not his press secretary," Peskov told reporters.
Gorbachev said earlier in an interview with TASS:
"The Soviet Union cannot be restored. But a new Union can be established. In the former borders, with the same members, on the basis of free will."
