MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Kremlin on Thursday shrugged off new allegations of doping in Russian sport and slammed those giving such evidence to Western broadcasters as "well-known fugitive figures working off their 30 silver coins".

The Kremlin maintains that documentaries, including the ones by German public broadcaster ARD/WDR, about numerous cases of Russians using banned substances, are "unfounded slander", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told journalists.
