The cables leaked by the WikiLeaks website are so "comical" that they cannot possibly affect Russian-U.S. relations, a spokesman for Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

The cables leaked by the WikiLeaks website are so "comical" that they cannot possibly affect Russian-U.S. relations, a spokesman for Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said on Thursday.

"I don't think I have a right to comment on Russian-U.S. ties. But I don't think they will be affected," Dmitry Peskov said.

In a document released on Monday, the U.S. Ambassador to Moscow said Russian President Dmitry Medvedev "plays Robin" to his strongman Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's "Batman."

A wire leaked on Thursday by the Guardian newspaper quoted a Spanish prosecutor, who called Russia a "virtual mafia state," in which widespread corruption involves both the Kremlin and other leading officials.

Over leaks claimed that Russia supplied separatist forces in South Ossetia and Abkhazia with weapons in the lead-up to the Georgian attack on South Ossetia in August 2008, and that Russian gas giant Gazprom is "like a vulture" in its attempts to secure new assets.
