Dmitriy Peskov comments on Ukrainian lawmakers' suggestion to cease diplomatic ties with Russia
Dmitriy Peskov, a Russian diplomat and a Press Secretary for the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, told journalists that the Ukrainian draft on suspension of diplomatic relations with Russia 'borders on insanity'.
Peskov states: "Let's wait for the results of considerations, whether Rada [Ukrainian Parliament] votes for this decision or not. Obviously, different initiatives that border on insanity are not rare in Kyiv as of recently. So I am not willing to comment further on this."
On March 30 the Verkhovna Rada [Ukrainian Parliament] Committee on Foreign Affairs recommended the parliament to review a draft on suspension of diplomatic relations with Russia.
