The Security Service of Ukraine is checking the information checking the information on the visit of Dmitry Peskov, the press-secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, to Luhansk on the occupied territory. Yuriy Tandit, the advisor of the Head of the Security Service of Ukraine, announced that on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
“We are checking the information, but no comments yet,” Tandit said.
“I don’t want to give the emotional commentary, I can only say that Luhansk and Donetsk are the territories of Ukraine and officially Russian Federation confirms that, though in every way and every deed they show that they ignore any norms of Ukrainian-Russian relations, this is also true for other agreements they sign,” he added.
Earlier, the outlet Ostrov (The Island) reported that Peskov secretely arrived in Luhansk, citing the source in the SBU. One of the possible reasons is the potential change of ‘leadership” of the so-called “Luhansk People’s Republic”.
