“I was almost all the talks I have not heard a phrase,” said Sands, responding to a reporter’s question, according to which, this remark of Putin is contained in the memoirs of the former President of France, Francois Hollande.
A Kremlin spokesman added that did not read the memoirs of the French leader, so can’t comment on excerpts from the book.
