Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has denied media reports that Russia is allegedly preparing a ground operation in Syria.

Peskov said that he could only repeat Russian President Vladimir Putin's words that Russia would not take part in a ground operation in Syria.

The CNN television station reported earlier, citing unnamed representatives of the U.S. Department of Defense, that Russia was preparing for a ground operation in Syria.
