VILLAGE UST-BIUR (KHAKASSIA), June 26. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin explained US President Barack Obama that the allegations about Russian military presence in Ukraine were a misconception, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said describing the two presidents’ conversation as constructive.
The White House reported last night that the issue had been raised in the telephone conversation between the two leaders.
"It’s easy to predict that the Russian president replied to that," Peskov told reporters answering their question. "This misconception about the presence of Russian troops has been promulgated by various leaders, and every time the Russian side provides its explanations," he said.
Peskov noted that the two presidents’ conversation was "quite lengthy and constructive, considering divergence of opinion on some issues." "At the same time, it was constructive in terms of the absence of an alternative to dialogue, discussing issues to facilitate their resolution," he added.
