Moscow says US leaks may be intended to ‘deceive’ Russia

THE leak of a trove of highly sensitive documents online could be a move by the United States to “deceive” Russia, its deputy foreign minister was quoted as saying today.

“It’s probably interesting for someone to look at these documents, if they really are documents, or they could be a fake, or it could be an intentional leak,” Sergei Ryabkov told Russian news agencies.
