Kremlin: anti-corruption campaign in Dagestan not tied to politics
Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the anti-corruption campaign conducted in Dagestan is not related to politics but stems from the need to obey the law.
"The geography of the ongoing anti-corruption campaign is not limited to one region, namely Dagestan in this particular case, it is consistently and intentionally being carried out nationwide," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
He assured that "the investigative procedures are not tied to politics."
According to Peskov, in this particular case, they are "guided by legal considerations and the inevitability of punishment for any committed crimes, be it economic or in any another sphere."
"Therefore, everything must be left to the investigative authorities, and ultimately to judicial bodies, which are able and authorized to decide on the illegality of certain actions," Peskov concluded.
