MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. The Kremlin shrugged off opposition politician Alexey Navalny’s anti-corruption allegations against Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Friday.
Peskov said the Kremlin saw media reports of Navalny’s findings but did not study them in detail.
"This is not the first example of creativity by this well-known convicted citizen," Peskov asserted.
He said he had nothing to add to Thursday’s statement by Medvedev’s spokeswoman, Natalia Timakova.
"Navalny’s report has a definite pre-election tone mentioned by him at the end of the video," she said. "It is meaningless to comment on propaganda rants made by an opposition figure who was convicted and who says he is already conducting some election campaign and is fighting against the government."
Navalny who was convicted of fraud in 2014 and given a 3.5-year suspended sentence published a 50-minute video on Thursday hurling accusations of corruption at Prime Minister Medvedev.
