The Kremlin considers Ukraine a part of the "Russian World". Russian authorities dislike Ukraine's denial of this fact.

This was stated by the press-secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, RBC-Ukraine reports citing the Russian media.

"It would be outright foolish to deny cultural and historical ties, as well as common roots [of Ukraine and Russia]", he said.

According to Putin's press secretary, "the line to denying this communion" persists in Ukraine. "But we do not like it," Peskov said.

Answering a question about what Russia plans to do to protect the "Russian World", he has noted that Moscow intends to use "soft power", adding that, allegedly "Russia never uses ways that contradict international law".
