MOSCOW, 30 Jul – RIA Novosti. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov did not consider it possible to talk about the fracture and the warming in relations between Russia and the West on the background of the situation with the pandemic coronavirus.

In his opinion, relations between Russia and the West in fact has not changed.

“I don’t think they have changed. Do the communication (Vladimir) Putin and his colleagues from other countries. And that communication, it actually never left in the areas representing mutual interest and mutual benefit”, – said Peskov.

He noted that Putin often lately spoke with the President of the United States Donald trump, “because the situation on the oil market was disastrous and she required a coordination and mutual action.”

“Putin spoke to (French President Emmanuel) the Macron before the pandemic, and this is probably primarily due to the fact that the President Makron has a very broad international vision, which allowed him before the start of the pandemic to take the formula that, Yes, we have many disagreements, but that’s no reason to stop communicating, because to resolve these differences is possible only through dialogue. This is what is closest of the Russian Federation, closest to President Putin,” Peskov said.
