JOHANNESBURG, July 27. /Basereporter.com/. Russian President Vladimir Putin refrained from commenting on the possibility of holding a referendum on Ukraine on the issue of Donbass.
“I’ll refrain from commenting, this is a very delicate, sensitive area that requires further study and development,” he said, answering questions at a press conference following his visit to South Africa.
Previously, the Agency Bloomberg with reference to sources reported that the meeting of leaders of Russia and USA in Helsinki discussed the possibility of holding a referendum in the Donbass. Later the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that if the international community and the United States can’t force Kiev to fulfill “Minsk-2”, we can discuss other options of settlement.
