MOSCOW, April 1. /TASS/. President of Russia Vladimir Putin has no relation to property manager Grigory Bayevsky as reported by the media in an apparent information attack on the Russian leader, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
‘The person mentioned in these reports is not known to us. In this case, the president has no relation to this person and therefore we can’t be addressed on these issues," Peskov said.
"To all appearances, this [publication] is part of an information attack the Kremlin warned of earlier," Peskov said in reply to a specifying question.
"We’re convinced that these publications will continue appearing one way or another. They will still follow," the presidential spokesman said.
The Kremlin spokesman said earlier that some media outlets were preparing "an undisguised and deliberate" information attack on Putin and his close circle. The Kremlin said the organizers of this attack had devised a whole campaign targeting the forthcoming parliamentary elections in Russia.
Moreover, "this involves not just purely journalist activity but a campaign related to the attempts to destabilize the situation in the country, discredit the country’s leadership, first of all, the president, and thus exert influence on the situation in the country and the electoral process," Peskov said at the time.
Reuters news agency reported on Thursday that businessman Bayevsky from St. Petersburg was transferring properties to the persons who allegedly had relation to the close circle of President Putin.
