“No, it doesn’t, it is a common practice,” — said Peskov on a question whether a long time to leave the staff that there could be some dialogue on this situation.

“To demand such a large-scale reduction in such period which were allocated on the eve of the new year, our diplomats, it would be inhumane and incorrect, so this time,” explained Sands.
