MOSCOW, November 25 /TASS/. Russian Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has blasted reports as unfounded rumors that Kremlin administration’s employees allegedly offered Nikita Belykh, the former governor of Russia’s Kirov region, a plea bargain down to house arrest if he turned state’s evidence against Russian opposition figurehead Alexei Navalny.
"This is just another unfounded rumor," the spokesman stressed. "An investigation is currently underway. Neither the presidential administration, nor its employees have got anything to do with these investigative activities. Moreover, they are not in a position to bargain with anybody for a release," Peskov explained. "It’s absurd," the Kremlin spokesman added.
Nikita Belykh, the former Kirov Regional Governor, has been charged with large-scale bribery.
