Spokesman of the Russian Federation Foreign Ministry Aleksander Lukashevich stated this at a press briefing, Ukrainska Pravda writes.
"I'm unfamiliar with such statistics and I think it is inspired rather by the Ukrainian propaganda opportunities that emphasize that we are fighting on the side of the militants. This is not true at all," Lukashevich said.
He also denied the reports that Russia will possibly hold peacekeeping operation on the territory of Ukraine.
"Nothing of the kind," he said and added that the information was denied "at the highest levels."
"This information is evidently spread by someone who wants to get a reaction of Russia to the events in Ukraine," Lukashevich assured.
It is known that one of the leaders of the Donetsk militants Alexander Boroday said that 34 militants from Russia were killed as a result of the liberation of the Donetsk airport by the ATO forces on May 29.
He added that the bodies of all the victims had been sent to Russia. Any Russian central channel did not reported about this.
