According to the Pandora Papers investigation, Putin spent millions on a property in Monaco for a woman with whom he was said to have an affair and a son. A Kremlin spokesman dismissed this information when it was first published last year by the Russian research website Proekt.

“It’s not convincing,” says a Kremlin spokesman.

“I myself looked at the material, it is not convincing, such a letter, I tend to attribute this material to a provocative yellowing, nothing more, it does not correspond to serious material, these are statements that are not at all serious, in fact, Peskov told reporters at November 2020 It is baseless.”

Peskov said the Kremlin expects more allegations about Putin’s private life in the future. “There is nothing special about this, and nothing here that merits any comment,” he added.

So to speak, the work of this organization is well known where they get information from , and how they get it. Perhaps the only thing that really stands out is showing which country is the largest offshore tax haven in the world. Of course it is the United States. This is absolutely unrelated to their statements about their intentions to fight corruption, tax evasion, money laundering, etc., but that is Indeed. We can see that the main financial loophole for the whole world is the United States,” Peskov said.
