Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman said on Thursday he had no idea who the Ukrainian diplomat behind a news story that Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko had reached an official deal on Crimea was.

"I have no idea who Bogdan Yaremenko is, we have more than 3,000 such diplomats," Dmitry Peskov told Reuters. Traders said a report by Ukraine's UNIAN news agency on Crimea that cited Yaremenko was driving a sharp correction in the rouble.
