MOSCOW, February 19. /ITAR-TASS/. All responsibility for the current unrest in Ukraine lies squarely on the extremists, Russian presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov has said.
At the same time he said that “the Russian president’s position is confined to waiting for an early settlement of the situation,” Peskov said, adding that the ways and means of achieving a settlement was Ukraine’s own business.
Peskov said that late last night the Russian and Ukrainian presidents had a telephone conversation. He dismissed as a fake mass media allegations about the contents of what was said.
“Everything that has been published about the contents of the conversation is not true,” Peskov said.
“The Russian president did not give any advice before and is not giving advises to his Ukrainian colleague on what to do. And he does not intend to advise him in the future,” Peskov added.
The presidential spokesperson said that Moscow was maintaining a dialogue with all civilized political forces in Ukraine.
In reply to journalists’ question about extending a second loan tranche he said: "I cannot say anything on the issue yet."
"Obviously, in the situation when extremists stage what is happening in Ukraine, settlement of this situation is the top priority," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated.
