Cyprus’ justice ministry has not received any request from Moscow’s prosecution office over its “potential involvement” in Russia’s terror attacks, Justice Minister Marios Hartsiotis said on Thursday.

Responding to a journalist’s question during a press conference, Hartsiotis said nothing had come through to the ministry yet.

“To be completely honest with you, we have not had any formal information over anything.”

A day earlier, Russia’s Tass news agency reported that the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office requested information from the US, Germany, France and Cyprus over their potential involvement in terrorist attacks on Russia.

Tass reported that Russian lawmakers presented “direct evidence against the masterminds, organisers and perpetrators of these crimes and those who have covered them up and financed them.”

It cited the prosecutors as hoping the other countries would “earnestly consider the requests.”
