Negative attitude of German Chancellor Angela Merkel toward Victory parade in Crimea groundless – Kremlin


The regrets of German Chancellor Angela Merkel regarding Russia’s intention to hold the Victory parade in Crimea while the situation in Ukraine remains tense are groundless, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

The situation in Ukraine cannot be related to Crimea, Peskov said on air of the Ekho Moskvy (Echo of Moscow) radio station.

At the same time, Russian leaders share Merkel’s concern about the Ukrainian conflict, he said.

“We are extremely concerned about how the situation develops in Ukraine and we continue our dialogue,” Peskov said.
