Russia "doesn't give a damn" about the assessments of the country's domestic affairs expressed in Wikileaks's revelations, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Wednesday.
"Actually we don't give a damn about things being discussed in diplomatic circles while assessing the social processes in our country. It is just opinion," Medvedev told students at the Indian Institute of Technology during his official visit to India.
In late November, whistleblowing web site Wikileaks began releasing a huge number of confidential U.S. cables which contain, in particular, forthright comments about many world leaders.
President Medvedev was described as "Robin" in deference to his "Batman" Prime Minister Vladimir Putin,
"It is not a secret that when people communicate, they often use very forthright expressions," Medvedev said, adding that if the similar leak occurred in Russia's Foreign Ministry or security services, the country's partners, including the United States might be strongly emotional while reading "warm words about themselves."
