MOSCOW, July 21. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not comment in any way on the statements of governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region Mikheil Saakashvili about Russian President Vladimir Putin, published by The Independent newspaper, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
"Absolutely no comment," Peskov said, answering a question about how the Kremlin would comment on the politician’s interview to the UK newspaper. "Let’s say that perhaps it’s common knowledge to what extent Saakashvili’s statements can be trusted. It is also known very well in his country where he, to all appearances, can hardly arrive, and also in other countries, including Russia."
In an earlier comment on the situation in Ukraine in an interview with The Independent, Mikheil Saakashvili said, in particular, that Putin "is obsessed with the idea of testing NATO."
