MOSCOW, July 23. /TASS/. Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s interview, in which he, in particular, names the "successors" of Russian President Vladimir Putin, is of no interest to the Kremlin. "There is nothing [in this interview] that would claim our attention," presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
"No, I cannot comment on it in any way," he said in response to a request by journalists to comment on the report in the Sobesednik weekly. "I saw it, but there is nothing to comment on there," Peskov said.
Sobesednik published an interview with the former Yukos head on Thursday, in which he reflects on several issues. In particular, Khodorkovsky named the current Kremlin Chief of Staff Sergey Ivanov and Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev among Putin’s "successors."
