MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin always has the necessary communication tools, including the strategic ones, wherever he is, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday.
"All the necessary communication tools, including the strategic communications, are always with the president wherever he is, be it Russia or any other country in the world," Peskov noted when asked if Putin had his nuclear briefcase during the holiday in Russia’s taiga. He added that the same applies to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. "How else? Of course," the spokesman said.
He underlined that the recent hostile remarks of US leader Joe Biden aimed at his Russian counterpart did not affect Putin’s plans and "there were no reasons to reschedule [this trip]."
