MOSCOW, November 28. /TASS/. The Kremlin is ready to provide proof that there were no threats in a phone conversation between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart Petro Poroshenko, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Friday.
The negotiations of two leaders are usually held in a business-like and constructive atmosphere, he said. “No one has ever used any threats during these numerous conversations,” Ushakov added.
“We have 100% proof as there is a verbatim report for each phone conversation, there is a recording,” he explained, in comments to Ukrainian media reports on alleged threats voiced by the Russian leader against Ukraine.
The Russian and Ukrainian leaders had a phone conversation late on Tuesday. Media reports later claimed Putin and Poroshenko had allegedly touched upon the theme of Ukraine’s relations with NATO.
Some argued that the Russian president uttered threats against his Ukrainian counterpart. A short while later Ukraine dismissed these rumours. The chief of the Ukrainian presidential department of information, Irina Frits, said the media rumours of any threats were not true.
Earlier this week, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov also dismissed as fiction the rumours on alleged threats by Russia.
“Various reports by a number of mass media, in the first place, Ukrainian, regarding the content of the conversation are fiction and have nothing to do with the reality,” Peskov said.
The leaders discussed bilateral relations and the situation in southeastern Ukraine, Peskov said.
