No comment from Kremlin regarding Kiev’s accusations regarding presidential aide -->

MOSCOW, April 15. The Kremlin sees no reason for commenting on "another spiral" of accusations from Kiev addressed to Russian presidential aide Vladislav Surkov.

"In this particular case there is nothing to comment on," presidential press-secretary Dmitry Peskov said, when asked about Ukrainian Security Service’s statement about an investigation involving Surkov.

"That’s a very old story," he said. "They never stop investigating something. Then they refute it themselves. We have heard a statement from there that somebody has acknowledged that was no intervention (in the internal affairs of Ukraine), then somebody resumes it again…" Peskov said.

He added he knew nothing about any official notifications to Moscow from Kiev about such probes.

Earlier, Ukrainian Security Service chief Valentin Nalivaichenko said that Surkov was in Ukraine on February 20-21 last year and the investigators will "examine that aspect."
