MOSCOW, March 25 /TASS/. The Russian Armed Forces are not involved in conflicts in the territory of Ukraine, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Monday.
He said there could be no talk about that because Russia had never sent troops to eastern Ukraine. "We know that the Russian armed forces have never been linked to these events," Peskov said when asked whether two Russian airborne brigades had received the title "guard".
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday awarded the honorary "guard" title to the 11th and 83rd separate airborne and assault brigades as well as to the 38 communications regiment.
The texts of the relevant decrees have appeared on the official portal of legal information.
"For mass heroism, bravery, staunchness and courage that the brigade displayed in military hostilities to defend Fatherland and state interests in armed conflicts and taking account of its merits in peace time, I decree to award the ‘guard’ title to the 11th separate airborne and assault brigade," Putin wrote in one of the decrees.
According to Peskov, the documents concerning the 83rd separate airborne and assault brigade and the 38th communication regiment contained similar texts.
