MOSCOW, June 05. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmirty Medvedev has slammed G7 speculations about allegedly moderate actions by Kiev in Ukraine's east as cynical.
Medvedev has also said the Kiev authorities' statement on the absence of Ukrainian refugees in Russia is "a lie".
"About 3,000 people are arriving only in the Rostov Region every day. This is an unprecedented situation," Medvedev has said. About 4,000 Ukrainian citizens have asked Russia for a refugee status, he added.
"I've called the Rostov region governor over this topic," Medvedev said at a government session on Thursday.
"He (the governor) said, 'These are mostly women and children'," the Russian premier said.
