MOSCOW, September 27. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not confirm rumors of preparations for the abolition of the Investigative Committee.
"For the time being all this is circulating in the form of rumors, and, as is known, we do not comment on rumors," Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said when asked if there were any plans for the elimination of the IC.
Earlier, some media alongside publishing reports of plans for disbanding the IC also claimed that IC chief Alexander Bastrykin had tendered his resignation to the president. Peskov said on Monday he knew nothing of this. For his part, IC spokesman Vladimir Markin dismissed the rumors of Bastrykin’s resignation as fraud.
Before that Markin himself wrote a resignation statement.
