Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov denied media claims that Russia spent $536 million on military operation in Syria.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday denied news reports that Russia's military operations in Syria allegedly cost $536 million.

"No, none has been received," Peskov told journalists when asked whether the Kremlin had received any information on the cost of the Syrian operation.

Earlier, RBC news reported that Russia had spent 38 billion rubles on its mission in Syria.

When asked if the Kremlin's numbers matched that of the news agency's, Peskov said, "No, they don't match. You should probably ask the respected publication where they got these expenses from."
