MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. Russian Foreign Ministry’s move to publish the correspondence concerning the organization of the Normandy format summit (Germany, Russia, Ukraine, France) is unconventional but still brilliant and decisive, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the Rossiya-1 TV channel.
"What is happening now in world diplomacy has never happened before, so, there has been much deceit. [We were] desperate to explain anything, and amid these public accusations of Moscow, such a brilliant step was taken," the Kremlin spokesman stated.
Peskov also agreed that such a move is not traditional for diplomacy. "But on the other hand, an unconventionally crafty situation probably requires unconventional decisive actions," he noted.
On Wednesday, the Russian Foreign Ministry decided to publish the diplomatic correspondence between the Russian, French and German top diplomats in order to avoid distorting Moscow's stance on the Normandy meeting.
