MOSCOW - The Kremlin has pointed to what it says is the extremely free interpretation by the Yushchenko secretariat chief, Vera Ulianchenko, of the message from Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko, Kyiv Post reported.

"In principle, this text signed by Ms. Ulyanchenko on behalf of quite an unrepresentative (just of 3% rating) party does not need any comment. Anyone who is interested can simply read the letter from our president Dmitry Medvedev on the Internet in order to understand just how freely Ms. Ulyanchenko is interpreting what has been said," Deputy chief of the Russian Presidential Administration Alexei Gromov said told journalists, commenting on Ulyanchenko's letter.

At the same time, "one of her statement cannot be ignored," he said, citing the following statement by Ulyanchenko, "The aggressive tone of the Russian leader's address in fact concerns not Viktor Andriyovych Yushchenko and his policy but the whole of our state and all the Ukrainian people."

"Everything is precisely the opposite: there is and can be no aggression, what we have here is a cool and well-considered acknowledgement of a fact: the effect of the policy by the current Ukrainian president on Russian-Ukrainian relations," Gromov said.

"Therefore it was him who this message was addressed to," Gromov said.

"The way our Russian president, our country are treating the Ukrainian people, the Ukrainian state, has been exceptionally respectful, warm and fraternal," he said.

Gromov asked journalists to draw public attention once again to those multiple assessments made by the Russian president in his speech on August 11, 2009, the mentioning of which is being so carefully avoided in Ulyanchenko's letter.

"Maybe, it will have at least some sobering effect on its authors," he said.
