MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. The Kremlin is unaware of the media reports about the alleged desertion of contract soldiers in Rostov. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov thus commented on the Gazeta.ru report, according to which these service members fearing deployment to Ukraine's war-torn Donbas region who had fled their units, could now face trial.
"I have not seen, unfortunately, and have not read this publication," Peskov said. "I am unaware of this and cannot tell you whether the president is aware of the issue, I just don’t know." "But this is a question that should rather be addressed to the Defense Ministry. After all, the army has its statute. We all served in the army and we know what it is all about," he said.
