Kremlin denies speculations about cabinet’s dismissal over Ulyukayev case

It will be "absurd" to speculate about some "collective responsibility", the presidential spokesman has noted

SOCHI, November 15. /TASS/. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has dismissed as absurd speculations about collective responsibility and dismissal of the Cabinet over the Ulyukayev case.

"I can see no link (between the charges against Ulyukayev and the Cabinet’s performance)," Peskov told the media. "There’ve been some personal charges, which are not a reason yet for recognizing a government minister or any other individual as guilty of corruption."

"Furthermore, in this particular case it will be absurd to speculate about some collective responsibility," Peskov said.
