MOSCOW, April 6. /TASS/. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said Monday he does not know anything about a new presidential decree on introducing an additional list of officials prohibited from owning assets or property abroad.

"I don’t know anything about the existence of such a decree," Peskov told journalists.

The Kremlin spokesman said many officials are "already prohibited from owning assets abroad," including Peskov himself. "Are officials even allowed to own assets abroad now? We need to clarify this," he said.

Several media reported earlier that some federal agencies are preparing additional lists of officials prohibited from keeping assets in foreign banks, using financial instruments and owning property abroad.

In May 2013, a federal law was adopted prohibiting the officials who make decisions "that concern issues of sovereignty and national security" from owning assets and property abroad. Media said earlier that officials that "have access to classified information" will also be added to the list of those prohibited from owning assets and property abroad.
