MOSCOW, August 26 (Itar-Tass) - A spokesperson for the Civic Platform Party dismissed on Monday reports saying its leader, billionaire-turned-politician Mikhail Prokhorov, was planning to quit the party leadership.
“These are unclear sources. We don’t comment on information spun out of thin air,” Tatyana Kosobokova said. According to the spokesperson, “the work connected with the upcoming elections continues in the party”.
