Kremlin Says Offshore Investigation Seeks to 'Destabilize' Russia

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov

Investigative journalists are publishing material linking Russian President Vladimir Putin to offshore companies in an attempt to “destabilize the situation in Russia,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced Monday, the RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Peskov told journalists on Monday that the attempt is futile and unlikely to have any negative impact because it “lacks evidence.”

“Other heads of government are featured but only photographs of Putin are published,” Peskov said, RIA Novosti reported.

“Putin, Russia, our country, our stability, our upcoming election — the fundamental aim is to destabilize all of it,” he added.

Peskov was answering a question about the reasons behind the appearance of Putin's photograph in a number of Western newspapers in connection with an investigation into offshore companies.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
