ZAVIDOVO /Tver Region/, January 25. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the purported palace that he allegedly owns in Gelendzhik according to a certain “investigation” doesn’t belong to him or his close relatives.

“I haven’t seen this film simply due to lack of free time to look into such information, but I looked through selected video clips that my aides brought me,” he said at an online meeting with university students. “Nothing of what is listed there as my property belongs or has ever belonged to me or my close relatives. Never!”

Putin thinks that the rumors of the palace he allegedly owns were used to try brainwash Russians.

“This information has been stirred up for more than 10 years. And now, it has all been cobbled together for a very convenient occasion to brainwash our citizens with these materials by launching some films and video programs on the Internet,” he said Monday during an online meeting with university students.

Putin also drew attention of the students that any property of this kind has certain documentation and data about financial transactions, “even certain legal procedures with notaries, there should also be traces left there in notary books and in the digital space.”

“And what is there instead of any of that? They posted a picture of me swimming butterfly – I like swimming like that even if clumsily – in some swimming pool that I’ve never been to. I don’t know what this swimming pool is, but I swam like that in the Yenisei River in 2016. In these cases, it is just compilation and editing manipulation,” the president added.

Putin pointed out that he knows some of the people mentioned in the film, some of them are old fellows or former colleagues, distant relative or just a person he knows. “Meanwhile, there are people that I don’t know at all, have never seen them and am not acquainted with” he reassured. “I get it that they don’t want to stand too close to me because anyone who appears next to me immediately faces sanctions,” he added. Speaking about his acquaintances mentioned in the “investigation”, Putin underlined that they entered the business world long before he became president.
