Moscow: Russia on Friday denied reports of Prime Minister Vladmir Putin`s younger daughter marrying a South Korean national, saying it was "absolutely far from reality".

"The report of a South Korean daily about the marriage of one of Vladimir Putin`s daughter is absolutely far from reality," Putin`s official spokesman Dmitry Peskov was quoted as saying by RIA Novosti.

Popular English language Korea JoongAng Daily published in Seoul in collaboration with The International Herald Tribune about the marriage of Putin`s younger daughter Ekaterina (23) with 25-year-old son of a South Korean diplomat posted in Moscow.
Rumours about marriages of Putin`s elder daughter Maria, 25 and Ekaterina have been spread in the past also, but were not substantiated.
