SIMFEROPOL, March 16. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the latest events inside and around Ukraine have had no effect on Vladimir Putin’s schedule of visits or visits by VIP foreign guests to Moscow.
“No changes have been made to the existing plans so far. Everything proceeds as usual,” Peskov told the daily Komsomolskaya Pravda in an interview.
The national leadership has made no changes to Russia’s policy despite harsh statements by officials in some G8 countries.
“Statements are not a reason enough to make any adjustments yet,” Peskov said, adding that Moscow was proceeding with cooperation with those countries in the standard mode.
