Photo: Eric Gaillard/Reuters In recently appeared book "Lessons of the Power" the former president of France François Hollande tells about negotiations in "a Norman format" in 2015 with participation of leaders of Russia, Ukraine and Germany. According to Hollande, during the conversation the President of Russia Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian colleague Petro Poroshenko "constantly raised the voice at each other". "Several times the atmosphere was heated, Putin suddenly became angry and threatened to crush simply the Ukrainian troops" — cites AFP.Kak the ex-president of France writes, the remark could be regarded as recognition of the Russian military presence in the east of Ukraine, Putin has right there taken away the words back. Hollande's revelations were commented by the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov. According to him, the Russian leader talked to Poroshenko "rigidly, unambiguously and very intelligibly", but didn't resort to threats. "Naturally, Putin didn't tell him complementary phrases. But, of course, such formulation wasn't used" — cites Interfax Peskov. Whether it is possible to call information in Hollande's memoirs painful for the Kremlin? Professor of MGIMO Valery Solovey:valery the Nightingale professor of MGIMO comments, the doctor of historical sciences "I don't think that information is especially sensitive for Moscow as Vladimir Putin's reputation as the negotiator is well-known. Moscow traditionally rigidly conducts negotiations, maybe, the only exception was made by the 1990th years. There is a mass of memoirs where all this is described so nothing surprising. Here the question could be in use of these or those terms. Let's say Hollande's term — "to crush" looks pejorative. Perhaps, Putin used other word in the original if at all he used, but these are no more than linguistic games. In essence it doesn't touch Russia in any way, I think that it can even be pleasant to us. To us — I mean in this case to the Kremlin after all". It should be noted that "Lessons of the power" left in sale in April of this year: just in Russia and in Ukraine a remark about "to crush troops" have noticed just now. The Kremlin called the publication "incorrect". "It is abnormal. More likely, it is possible to tell unambiguously that this incorrect disclosure of information. Similar plums which often don't correspond to reality only harm" — Dmitry Peskov has said. Even if Putin really in the heat of a discussion used such expression, is how ethic from Hollande to write about it in memoirs? This question was answered by the vice-president of Association of the Russian diplomats, the former ambassador of Russia in Saudi Arabia Andrey Baklanov:andrey Baklanov the vice-chairman of Association of the Russian diplomats, the former ambassador of Russia in Saudi Arabia "It is very delicate question, but in general the settled tradition, and it, probably, is correct
