Dmitry Peskov, Spokesman of President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, excludes the possibility of making amendments to the Constitution that would provide the capability to incorporate annexed regions of Ukraine and Belarus into the Russian Federation. He said this in response to information provided from a number of media representatives, TASS reports.

"I have not heard about these proposals, so I cannot say anything. I have not heard how it is being formulated. In general, it has not been discussed anywhere yet. This is the first time I have heard it," Peskov said.

On January 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the creation of a working group in order to prepare amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, which included 75 politicians, legislators, scientists and public figures.
