The Kremlin refuses to disclose the names of Ukrainian politicians doing business in Russia.

This is evidenced by the answer of Russian President Vladimir Putin's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov to the relevant question, an UNIAN correspondent in Russia reported.

In particular, answering a question from UNIAN, whom the Russian president kept in mind when he spoke about Ukrainian politicians doing business in Russia and Crimea, Peskov said: "He meant Ukraine's incumbent politicians."
