MOSCOW (Sputnik) — WikiLeaks has published thousands of documents on Russia that were used in legal cases against its government, which proves that the whistleblower website is not trying to withhold any information that could undermine the country, its founder Julian Assange said in a special interview with John Pilger aired by RT.
"We have published over eight hundred thousand documents of various kinds that relate to Russia. Most of those are critical," Assange said.
He defied accusations that his website was in league with Russia and would not take Moscow in its crosshairs when publishing sensitive emails.
"Our documents have gone on to be used in quite a number of court cases, refugee cases of people fleeing some kinds of claimed political persecution in Russia, which they use our documents to back up," Assange stressed.
