Kremlin: no breakthrough in Russia’s relations with West amid pandemic
There has been no breakthrough in Moscow’s relations with the West amid the coronavirus pandemic, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in an interview with RTVI.
"I don’t think that they [relations] have changed," the spokesman said.
According to Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin does maintain communication with his counterparts in other countries and this kind of contact has always been there as far as areas of mutual interest and mutual benefit are concerned. "I don’t think it is right to talk about breakthroughs, everyone is in a rush to speak about a thaw," TASS cited him as saying.
"In this case, it is about crisis cooperation, which has always been there and will continue," Peskov pointed out, when asked how Russia’s relations with the West had changed.
