“Viktor Yanukovych and Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation
last night. However, some information on the content of this
conversation that has been published is false,” Peskov told reporters.
Russian President Vladimir Putin is calling for settling the standoff
in Ukraine as soon as possible, while acknowledging that this is the
prerogative of the legitimate Ukrainian authorities, Peskov said.
“The Russian leadership’s and the Russian president’s position
regarding the events in Ukraine consists in waiting for the soonest
possible settlement of this situation,” Peskov told journalists.
