MOSCOW, January 16. /TASS/. There is no proof substantiating Kiev’s allegations abouth the presence of Russian troops in Ukraine, Russian Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) Andrey Kelin said on Friday.
“7,500 (Russian troops allegedly present in Ukraine) is the figure that is being cited with no references to the source. It was voiced by the Ukrainian ambassador,” the Russian diplomat told the Russia 24 television channel. “I know a different figure, for instance, 700, that has been recently cited by the Americans.”
“But as a matter of fact, there are no Russian military there, not even any traces of them,” he said, adding that no one had managed to provide any reliable proof evidencing the presence of Russian servicemen in eastern Ukraine.
