MOSCOW, April 16. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s statements on the Ukraine crisis during an annual question and answer session officially known as "The Direct Line with Vladimir Putin" will lower the tension of speculations around this acute problem all over the world, deputy head of the United Russia caucus at the State Duma lower house of parliament told reporters on Thursday.
"One of major topics was the situation in Ukraine," Frants Klintsevich said. "Vladimir Putin said with full responsibility that there are no Russian troops in Ukraine and a war between our nations is impossible in principle."
At the same time, Klintsevich highlighted the president’s words that Russia would defend rights of Russian speakers in Ukraine.
"I think that the president’s clearly defined position will lower the tension of speculations around this acute problem all over the world," he said.
