Peskov: Putin not in touch with distant relative Mikhail
MOSCOW. March 22 (Interfax) - Mikhail Putin, who may join the management board of Gazprom, is a distant relative of the Russian president, but they never communicate, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.
"As far as I know, he really is a distant relative of the president. I don't know whether they communicate; that is, essentially, they don't communicate. But there really is some distant kinship," Peskov told journalists when asked whether Mikhail Putin is the president's relative.
