MOSCOW, April 5 /TASS/. The Kremlin does not comment the resignation of the prime minister of Iceland.
"Do you think it would be reasonable on my part to comment the actions of the prime minister of Iceland?" Russian president’s Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists. "The Kremlin has no stance in this case," he added.
Iceland’s Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunnlaugsson stepped down two days after the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) published some 11.5 million documents (the Panama papers) revealing "the offshore links of some of the planet’s most prominent people."
The publication is based on information leaks from the Panamanian company Mossack Fonseca, which renders legal assistance in the registration of companies in offshore zones.
The ICIJ report said that in 2007 Gunnlaugsson had bought the Wintris firm in the British Virginia Islands, which later issued credits to bankrupt Icelandic banks.
