The Kremlin on Monday slammed the leak of the "Panama Papers" tax documents as an attack aimed primarily at Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"Putin, Russia, our country, our stability and the upcoming elections are the main target, specifically to destabilise the situation," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists, adding that there was "nothing new or concrete" about the Russian leader in the leaks.

Soft punch...
This so called "leak" is a mere smear campaign aimed at Putin, where one of his "friends" is mentioned and they desperately try to spin a web (of lies) to implicate him, his name is not even mentioned in the Papers yet the Media singles him out. Ignored are Cameron's father, that association is a bit more close than a friend. The direct links to certain Royals, I wonder how that or if it will be tackled. I have little confidence this leak is taken serious nor do I hope for any type of change in the system. Unless ALL are exposed equally, including American Officials, it will just continue as is.
