The Kremlin has responded to an article in The Times about the plans for the offensive in Aleppo

Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov commented on an article in The Times, who recently admitted that the head of state Vladimir Putin is planning an attack on Aleppo in the time as the world will be watching the elections in the USA.

“If the Times has some information that militants are going to start large-scale offensive action, it would have written. All other messages about some intelligence – it is unlikely that the Times has information on plans of the President of Russia,” Peskov said (quoted by TASS).

The Times reported on plans to organize an offensive with the use of warships, submarines and missile systems, citing named sources in intelligence.
