Blaming Russia for everything is a disease: Kremlin on Pentagon leak
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov pointed out that the US' tendency to blame Russia for all misfortunes is a disease.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that the Kremlin is currently examining the classified files that were leaked from the Pentagon on April 7 and revealed that the US had been spying on its allies and China.
"The leaks are quite interesting, they are all being studied, analyzed, and widely discussed," Peskov told a briefing.
He also pointed out that the US tendency to blame Russia for all misfortunes is a disease.
When asked to comment on allegations of Russia's involvement in the leak, he said "No, I cannot comment on this in any way, we all know that it is actually such a tendency to blame everything on Russia, always and everywhere, but this is such a common disease now, so there is nothing to comment on."
Last week, The New York Times reported, citing officials familiar with the matter, that a new batch of classified US documents made up of more than 100 new files has been leaked, divulging information pertaining not only to Ukraine but also to China and the Middle East.
The Pentagon said on Sunday that the US is examining the implications of an apparent leak of a number of highly classified information on national security, AFP reported on Monday.
The leaked documents also have US officials scrambling to identify the leak's source, with some experts saying it could be an American rather than an ally, owing to the breadth of the topics addressed in the documents.
On Monday, CNN reported that Ukraine was forced to change some military plans following the leak of the documents that exposed some of the strategies laid down by the Ukrainian military.
