“I know definitely that Yanukovych is not in Russia and, in my modest opinion, Russia would not have granted him asylum,” Margelov said in an interview with Russia Today.
He stressed that Russia has no intentions of severing relations with Ukraine. “We maintain our ties, our relations with Ukraine in all spheres and have no intensions of severing them. We summoned our ambassador from Kyiv for consultations, because we really have to hold consultations with him and find out what is happening there,” Margelov said.
In his opinion, there can be no surprises with the further deployment of the Black Sea Fleet in the light of the latest developments.
