MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov is pretty glad about the wedding ceremony his wife, Olympic figure skating champion Tatyana Navka and he had in Sochi, but regrets the event received extensive media coverage. Peskov is also certain that the wrist watch his spouse gave him as a wedding gift has nothing to do with anti-corruption campaigns.
"I was not a news-maker last weekend. To tell you honestly, I was celebrating our wedding," Peskov told journalists, thanking them for congratulations.
He remarked he was not very happy to see the wedding turn into such big news.
"I would’ve preferred to have it all without any media gossip," Peskov added.
In his opinion "everything was just great."
When asked about the wrist watch he got from his wife as a wedding gift, which opposition figurehead Alexey Navalny estimated at tens of millions of roubles, Peskov said that "he could not but wear his wife’s gift on the wedding day."
"It is true that I was asked the question (about the watch). I answered it. Of course, no details. I will not say anything more. That’s our personal affair and nobody’s business," Peskov said. In his opinion "wives’ gifts to husbands and husbands’ gifts to wives can hardly have anything to do with anti-corruption activity."
Russian presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov and Olympic figure skating champion Tatyana Navka had an official wedding on August 1. The ceremony at the Rodina hotel in Sochi gathered dozens of guests, including politicians, officials, athletes and culture celebrities.
