Russia denies providing intelligence to Saddam at incipient stage of war
font size    

Russia on Saturday rejected as unfounded the Pentagon report which claims Moscow provided Saddam Hussein with information on U.S. military movements in the early period of the Iraq war in 2003.

"Similar, baseless accusations concerning Russia's intelligence have been made more than once." Russian Foreign Intelligence Service spokesman Boris Labusov said. "We don't consider it necessary to comment on such fabrications."

He was responding to a Pentagon report released on Friday which, citing a document seized from the toppled Saddam regime, claimed that Russian military intelligence was passed on to Saddam through the Russian embassy in Baghdad at that time.

Much of the Russian intelligence, however, turned out to be counterproductive, it said.

The report was written by the Pentagon's Joint Forces Command in assessing the events in the opening months of the Iraq war.
