Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday cast doubt on reports claiming that Turkiye had been supplying Ukraine with cluster bombs, adding that Moscow is monitoring the situation, APA's Moscow correspondent reports.

Foreign Policy reported on Tuesday, citing former US and EU officials, that Turkiye had supplied Ukraine with US-designed artillery-fired cluster bombs since November 2022.

"Of course, it is difficult to talk about the reliability of these reports. You know that there are more fakes than reliable and truthful reports. Therefore, of course, we are closely monitoring all this," Peskov told reporters, noting that Turkiye is Russia's partner.
