Putin ‘cannot believe’ Strauss-Kahn story as presented

Published on 27/05/2011

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Friday he "cannot believe" the attempted rape allegations against IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn as they were portrayed, Interfax news agency reported.

“It’s hard for me to analyse the political hidden motives, and I don’t even want to touch upon this issue, but I cannot believe that it looks the way it was initially presented,” Putin told journalists in his Moscow region residence.
