MOSCOW, September 9. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has no information if the head of state has any plans for asking the Federation Council (upper house of parliament) for the right to use the Russian armed forces outside the country, for instance, in Syria.
"I know nothing about that. This is the first time I hear about it," Peskov replied to media questions.
Last time Vladimir Putin asked the Federation Council to use the Russian Armed Forces outside Russia at the beginning of March 2014 in connection with the situation in Ukraine. The Federation Council then met the request. Several months later it revoked the permission following the president’s own message for cancelling it.
