MOSCOW, March 31. /TASS/. Moscow "strongly refutes" allegations about the presence of Russian Armed Forces units in Ukraine, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"We are absolutely not ashamed to talk about it, and we openly talk about it," Peskov said at the roundtable at TASS devoted to President Vladimir Putin’s 15 years in power, answering a question from a Ukrainian journalist.
"We strongly refute what is written in the media, and the media can write whatever they want," the spokesman said.
"The main thing is that [presence of Russian servicemen in Ukraine] is refuted by international observers and official representatives in Kiev," Peskov stressed.
