UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Russia has “nothing to do” with the political scandal in Austria, where the ruling coalition collapsed after the publication of a blatant video of national leader Heinz-Christian Straße, the Kremlin said on Monday.

“It’s a story that has nothing to do with and can not have anything to do with us,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on the tape.

The publication of a video showing Stretch and one of his closest aides, Johan Godinus, the head of the current parliamentary bloc of the Freedom Party, is discussing with a woman close to a Russian figure a window, a political earthquake in Austria.

They were talking about giving Austrian government contracts in exchange for financial aid.

After that, Strache resigned from his posts at the helm of the Freedom Party in Austria and as deputy to Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

“We can not tell who this woman is, whether she is a citizen or has Russian roots,” Piskov said.

Igor Makarov, the person who is said to be the daughter of his sister or brother, said Sunday in an interview with Forbes magazine in Russian version that he was a single child and “has no relationship” with the woman he “does not know at all.”
