VLADIVOSTOK, April 18. /TASS/. The issue of whether to recognize or not recognize the independence of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s republics, if it arises, will be considered proceeding from the situation at that time, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview with Vesti v Subbotu program host Sergey Brilyov.
"We will take into account realia that emerge in life," Putin said.
He said he does not want to comment on the issue. "I would not like to speak on the issue now, because whatever I say, everything could be counterproductive," the Russian president said.
