As reported by Censor.NET citing TASS, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said when commenting on the cancellation of Putin's visit to France.
"The president has not been in isolation," he said.
"Last week we saw French media reports the Russian president was allegedly insisting on his visit to France in an attempt to get out of isolation. This is absolutely absurd," Peskov said.
"The president's tight international schedule testifies to the opposite. The Russian president is experiencing no problems in that context," the spokesman added.
Earlier, Dmitry Peskov said that Vladimir Putin decided to postpone his visit to Paris scheduled for Oct. 19.
