A spoke??? ??? ???sperson for the Russian police said in a statement that there had been “a criminal investigation of a person by the Russian National Security Service that has been opened”.

According to the statement, investigators had received information about possible criminal activity on Nov 23 of a man of foreign origin living in Moscow and arrested him.

Peskov said the Kremlin had no further information on the arrest.

Putin has also been accused of corruption, including paying at least $ 24m (£15.7m) in bribes to his political allies and business people as well as a businessman who was allegedly involved in the construct?? ???ion of a luxury apartment building in a Moscow neighbourhood on his private estate.

Putin’s personal spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said on Sunday that the Russian president had never ordered an investigation into the accusations.

The spokesman said: “The facts of the case are not even secret.”

He also said he had nothing to do with the alleged corruption, adding that Peskov’s statements were based on “fabrications and rumors, fabricated by politicians”.
