Kremlin comments on Putin aide Surkov's resignation
Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has not confirmed the rumors that Russian President Vladimir Putin's aide, supervisor of the so-called "Luhansk and Donetsk People's Republics" Vladislav Surkov resigned.
"You know that we traditionally do not comment on any personnel rumors," Peskov told journalists, answering a question about Surkov's resignation, according to the Russian news agency RIA Novosti.
To the journalists' clarifying question whether these words mean there was no decree on resignation, Peskov said: "So far, we have not issued any decrees."
Reports that Surkov wrote a letter of resignation were spread on Telegram channels on May 24.
