MOSCOW, March 7. /ITAR-TASS/. Part of Ukrainian population has been turned down cold in its right to self-determination, right to legitimate decisions, right to act in defense of its dignity and safety. Russian presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stated this on Friday.
The presidential spokesperson added that the events taking place in eastern Ukraine and Crimea are out of all relation to the Russian Federation. “These are not artificial processes, and far less processes led by some specific actions from Russia’s side. On the contrary, Russia is the country asked for help,” Peskov noted. “And, as Putin rightly noted, Russia is the country that in this case by no means can leave these processes unnoticed. However, the origin of these processes is intra-Ukrainian,” the press secretary added.
