MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. The Kremlin believes that ‘the bacillus of Putinophobia’ has infected many in the West, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.
The Kremlin spokesman again commented on the so-called Panama Papers, which claimed hidden financial dealings of some of the world’s most prominent people, including Russian individuals and companies allegedly with links to the close circle of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As the presidential spokesman said, these materials "include a lot of information both on other politicians and representatives of other professions that is related to the heads of state and governments of other countries."
"But, perhaps, hardly anyone can dispute the fact that the world media organizations, both the press and the electronic media, have concentrated in a completely unexplainable way on our country and our president," the Kremlin spokesman said.
"We bore precisely this in mind when we spoke about such ‘bacillus of Putinophobia’ that has infected many in the Western community," Peskov said.
The presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, earlier said the Kremlin was disappointed by the lack of professionalism in the investigation. Peskov also refused to comment on the possibility of launching checks against officials mentioned in the recently published investigation.
