MOSCOW, July 21. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin may pay a visit to Crimea in August, but no such trip is planned yet, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Monday.

"It cannot be ruled out in August, but it is not planned in the next few weeks, as there are a lot of other scheduled trips," Peskov said, answering a question on whether Putin plans to visit the peninsula soon.

Peskov also denied that the president went to Crimea last weekend. "No, he was not there," the spokesman said.

Putin visited Crimea twice after the peninsula joined Russia. In August 2014, Putin held meetings with Russia’s Security Council in Sevastopol and with State Duma deputies in Yalta. On 9 May 2014, he attended the Victory Day parade in Sevastopol.
