MOSCOW, December 17. /TASS/. The situation on the Russian border with Ukraine affects the global economy, Russian president’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Rossiya 24 TV channel on Wednesday.
“Of course, on the whole a favorable for the economic development atmosphere requires peace and stability,” he said.
“When we don’t see peace and stability in Ukraine near our border, it affects us and negatively tells on our partners in Europe and on the global economy as a whole,” he said.
“Russia is consistently doing all to contribute to the establishment of peace,” he said. The source of crisis phenomena in the country’s economy would obviously be among the focal points at President Putin’s major annual news conference on Thursday, the spokesman said.
