“In “the business Sushchenko” the situation is now somewhat the same as it once was “Savchenko”. Now the Kremlin says: “do Not know not discussed”. In fact, it is an indicator of reflection, painful relationship to the topic. While I have no doubt that Putin not only knows about the “fact Sushchenko”, but in some tostapane engaged them,” – said Feigin.
