MOSCOW, March 23. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday he has no information on the fate of ex-Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s son.
"I have no information on this, I have simply nothing to say, and unfortunately, I can neither confirm nor refute this," Peskov told journalists.
Media reports said on Sunday that Viktor Yanukovych junior, the son of the ousted president of Ukraine, had drowned in Lake Baikal in Russia. The Baikal rescue team of the Russian Emergencies Ministry later refuted the reports.
"There is no one with a surname of Yanukovych among those killed and injured," a spokesman for the rescue team told TASS on Sunday.
The spokesman confirmed that an accident had taken place on March 20 near Cape Khoboi when a Volkswagen minibus with six people drowned under ice. Five passengers were saved, but the driver died.
He said all those involved in the accident had been identified but their names would not be made public.
