MOSCOW, April 5. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said he is not planning to apply to court in connection with media publications about his wife Tatiana Navka who allegedly founded some offshore companies. "I do not want to spend time on this," he told reporters.
The Kremlin spokesman noted that "there was nothing to contest in court, because she is not accused of anything, and I am not accused of anything either." "There is lots of defamation in media reports, there is too little time to waste it on this," Peskov said.
The Guardian earlier published papers that were allegedly used by Navka to register an offshore company - a copy of the first page of her passport and a utility bill receipt for an apartment in Moscow.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published on Sunday some 11.5 million documents revealing "the offshore links of some of the planet’s most prominent people." The leak includes material on hidden financial dealings of a range of Russian legal entities and individuals. Authors of the investigation claim that these operations could be tied to associates of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, earlier said the Kremlin is 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.
