    Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov dismissed media reports on hacking Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aide Vladislav Surkov's and said that Surkov "is not using e-mail at all."

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aide Vladislav Surkov is not using e-mail at all, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday when commenting on alleged release of his e-mails by a group of hackers.

    “We have seen it, it is an interesting document. This is not him. I can add that he [Surkov] is not using e-mail at all. Someone had to try really hard to produce this document,” Peskov said.

    Earlier, Ukrainian media reported that a group of Ukrainian hackers had allegedly gained access to Surkov’s e-mails and released some “documents” on its website.
