New Wikileaks cables which reveal corruption amongst Russia's "highest political echelons" will be published by the country's leading opposition paper Novaya Gazeta, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The weekly newspaper, known for reporting criticism against the Kremlin, reported that it had received unlimited access to material which links Russia's upper political echelon to organized crime as a result of cooperation with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

"Assange said that in the near future, Russian citizens will learn a lot of new things about their country," the newspaper said on its website. "He wasn't bluffing. Our partnership is aimed at exposing corruption in the highest political echelons."
