Russia has the full right to deploy military units within its own borders, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russia has the right to deploy military units wherever it wants within its own borders and this does not pose a threat to neighboring countries, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday.

"We don't accept these allegations, as you know, we don't agree with them. As for us deploying or military units one place or the other, it is the sovereign right of Russia to freely move our forces on the entire territory of our country. These movements are in no way threatening our neighbors," Peskov told reporters.

Several days before, President Putin ordered a snap inspection of the combat readiness of the Russian armed forces, which is set to last until June 22.
