Russia Calls US Tracing Putin’s Secret Accounts as 'Absurd'
The report in The Times on potential sanctions targeting President Vladimir Putin’s alleged secret personal wealth, is “apparently a hoax”, Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
The British newspaper reported that American financial investigators, who previously traced Al-Qaeda funding, would find the secret $40 billion of Putin’s money in numbered Swiss bank accounts, so that it can fall under US sanctions, RT reported.
“Why would anyone be scared of sanctions, especially as absurd as these?” Peskov commented.
“This can only be joked about.”
