The head of the Duma Committee on international Affairs Leonid Slutsky called “absolute rubbish” information to the American media about the alleged conversation between Jared Kushner, son-in-law and Advisor to the President of the United States Donald trump, and Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak on the possibility of creating a secret channel of communication with Moscow. On Saturday, may 27, according to RIA Novosti.
“I think it’s absolute trash, which is in line with the attacks on Kislyak and suspicions of Russian involvement in the election campaign trump, hacker attacks and other speculation, which even serious to discuss,” — said Slutsky. He noted that such suspicions will arise as long as the United States and other countries that are committed to the unipolar world led by Washington, “Russia sees the main threat in building world order”.
Earlier in the day, the Washington Post, citing a us intelligence report wrote that Jared Kushner and the Russian Ambassador in Washington Sergey Kislyak discussed the possibility of creating a “secret and secure channel of communication” between the transition team of trump and the Kremlin. This became known to the American authorities of “intercept Russian messages”, says WP.
According to these reports, Kislyak was “stunned” by the offer to allow the Americans the use of Russian means of communication with their Embassy or Consulate. This could entail safety risks for both Moscow and the team’s trump.
Earlier it was reported that Kouchner had concealed at least three contact Kislyak. According to sources among American officials, we are talking about contacts during and after the presidential campaign of 2016. Among them, as specified, there were two phone calls in the period from April to November last year.
