According to Peskov, the statements made by President Poroshenko are unsubstantiated and there are no Russian soldiers in Ukraine, Joinfo.ua reports referring to the Russian media.

"I see no need to repeat that such allegations without any specifics or any proof, to put it mildly, do not contribute to anything positive," he said.

It should be recalled that earlier, Poroshenko told the German channel ZDF said that 11 thousand Russian servicemen were in Ukraine.

As it is known, April 16, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that in Ukraine there were no Russian troops. "Answering the question of whether there are or there or no our troops in Ukraine, I say: there are no Russian troops in Ukraine," he said, answering the question of Irina Khakamada.

However, according to the data intercepted from the reports to the General Staff of the Russian Federation, the Russian army in the Donbas estimated 28 thousand people.
