Kremlin views reports on Russia's alleged meddling into South Africa's internal affairs as Russophobic conjecture

MOSCOW. Oct 23 (Interfax) - The Kremlin has dismissed media reports about Moscow's alleged interference in South Africa's internal affairs as another Russophobic allegation.

"It is another manifestation of flagrant Russophobia, which has nothing in common with reality," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

He thus commented on a question concerning South African media reports that high-ranking officials from Moscow travelled to this country for consultations with the South African president before the government was appointed in that country.
