#AceFinanceNews – MOSCOW – April 20 – 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 told Ekho Moskvy radio.
In the article it claimed the president had $ 40 billion in the accounts in Swiss banks. Presidential spokesman denied the presence of Vladimir Putin that kind of money.
In an interview with “Echo of Moscow” Dmitry Peskov said that the president should not fear sanctions. Earlier, the U.S. imposed sanctions against several dozen Russians, including the environment of Vladimir Putin.
“Why would anyone be scared of sanctions, especially as absurd as these?” Peskov commented.
“This can only be joked about.”
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) today released the following statement on being sanctioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin:
“I guess this means my spring break in Siberia is off, my Gazprom stock is lost, and my secret bank account in Moscow is frozen. Nonetheless, I will never cease my efforts on behalf of the freedom, independence, and territorial integrity of Ukraine, including Crimea.”
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.
