You're reading: Russia dismisses U.S. cable claims about Putin

MOSCOW, Dec. 2 (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's spokesman dismissed on Thursday claims made in leaked U.S. diplomatic cables about Putin's personal wealth as "ridiculous".

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that it was unclear whether the cables were genuine, but that if they were he would be surprised that U.S. diplomats could write such "rubbish".

He said that the purported cables repeated silly rumours and lacked supporting facts to back up their claims. He said he did not feel the documents would complicate Russia’s relations with the United States.
