Russia denies it told Saddam about US invasion moves
Russia's SVR foreign intelligence service denied a Pentagon report that said Moscow gave Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein intelligence from inside the US military command on US troop movements after the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
"It is not the first time that such unfounded accusations have been made against Russian intelligence," SVR spokesman Boris Labussov told AFP.
"We don't believe it is necessary to comment on such wild imaginings."
The Pentagon report published Friday said the Russians collected information from sources in the US Central Command in Doha, Qatar, which it then delivered to Saddam.
It is unclear what impact the Russian intelligence had on Saddam. The study depicted the dictator as being so out of touch with reality that he did not believe the United States would invade.
Some of the information appeared to have misled the Iraqi leadership into thinking that the main thrust of the 2003 US invasion would come from Jordan in the west, not from Kuwait in the south.
When the operation did start on March 20, 2003, Saddam -- who was ousted one month later and is now on trial for crimes against humanity -- did not think US forces would go all the way to Baghdad.
