Kremlin dismisses US media reports on Trump aides' ties with Russian intelligence

The US media reports about alleged contacts between members of Donald Trump’s election team and Russian intelligence officers are groundless, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.

"Let us not believe in what media say, for nowadays it is very difficult to tell actual news from fake ones," he said when asked if such contacts really took place. The Kremlin spokesman added that the relevant media reports cited five different sources "but not one of them is identified, which is just ridiculous." 

"Let us not rely on unidentified sources," Peskov said. "These reports are absolutely groundless, not based on any facts."

When answering a questing about contacts between representatives of the two countries, Peskov stressed that "working contacts are maintained."

 "Representatives of the US embassy in Russia communicate with Russian officials, meet with foreign ministry officers. The US diplomats also meet with representatives of the Russian regions, they also travel the country, which is a common diplomatic practice," the Kremlin spokesman said adding that there was nothing unusual about it.
