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.
