Russia to await U.S. explanations for corruption accusations against Putin

Russia will wait for the U.S. supreme leadership's explanations

Russia will wait for the U.S. supreme leadership's further explanations after Washington accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of corruption, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

"We will wait for any further explanations on the part of the supreme leadership of the U.S.," he said.

"Indeed, we need further explanations because such a statement is absolutely unprecedented," Peskov added.

"Since it is an absolutely unprecedented situation, it seems to us that such a need exists, and, we hope, our American colleagues will see this need to provide some explanations," Peskov said, after being asked whether the Russian side would demand any explanations at the official level if Washington did not provide them voluntarily.
