Peskov refers question about alleged 'cocaine' plane to airline

MOSCOW. Feb 28 (Interfax) - Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has referred a question about the plane that airlifted Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolai Patrushev to Bangkok and was allegedly involved in the so-called "cocaine case" to the airline.

"I do not have this information; you should probably ask the airline," Peskov said on Wednesday.

The Ilyushin Il-76 took Patrushev to Thailand on Tuesday. Several media outlets said that the same plane might be involved in the so-called "cocaine case" involving the suspected shipment of drugs from Argentina to Russia.
