NOVO-OGARYOVO, August 27 (Itar-Tass) - The rumours of funerals of allegedly Russian paratroopers in a number of cities require further checks, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.
“Certainly, this information is being checked by the agencies concerned,” Peskov said in reply to a question.
“This information needs detailed verification before any conclusions can be made.”
However, he said he was not sure that an inquiry was already underway. "I don't know for sure," he said.
Also he said, that claims about an upsurge in Russian military activity on the border with Ukraine have nothing to do with the reality.
He added that statements by certain sources about an alleged military build-up were not new.
“Such speculations are uttered regularly. Russia regularly refutes these claims, they have nothing to do with the reality,” Peskov said.
