SOCHI, November 16. /TASS/. The Kremlin is not commenting on media reports that Vice-Premier Arkady Dvorkovich and presidential aide Andrei Belousov came under the scrutiny of law-enforcement agencies, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"This question about how much this corresponds to reality should be addressed to investigative bodies," Peskov said in reply to the corresponding question.
"We, from the Kremlin, can’t answer these questions," he added.
Some media outlets reported earlier on Wednesday that the law-enforcement agencies had placed Dvorkovich, Belousov and aide to the first vice-premier Marina Romanova under scrutiny along with former Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev.
Ulyukayev was arrested on Monday night on suspicion of extorting and taking a $2 million bribe. He was placed under house arrest on Tuesday by a court ruling. Law enforcers said Ulyukayev had been under their scrutiny for over a year.
