Regular publications about the allegedly preparing Russian provocation in the east of Ukraine, press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov called nothing confirmed and wearing unfounded character.
“Until now, all these statements were worn out and were not confirmed by anything,” said the TASS sands, commenting on the relevant publications of a number of Western media, including CNN TV channel with reference to the source in the US administration.
Earlier on Friday, CNN TV channel with reference to the source in the US administration said that the United States, presumably, have information that the Russian Federation allegedly prepares provocation “under a strange flag” in the east of Ukraine. According to the source CNN, this can serve as a “excuse of invasion” to Ukraine of Russian forces. The Washington Post newspaper, Reuters, Agence France-Presse and Bloomberg, also spoke with similar publications.
