Sands stood up for Kislyak

Sergey Kislyak

Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called an invalid criticism of the Ambassador of Russia in the USA Sergey Kislyak. He said this to journalists on Wednesday, may 31, according to RIA Novosti.

“Attempts of all sorts of attacks on Kislyak unacceptable,” he stressed.

Previously, on 30 may, the foreign Ministry criticized the defamation of the diplomat. Deputy Minister Sergey Ryabkov said that the Agency does not publish “no details about the working contacts of the Ambassador or any other member of the Russian diplomatic service”. “This is the principle we follow and stick to. It would be a violation of the canons of work in the foreign Ministry”, — he explained.

On may 26, the Washington Post, citing us officials reported that the son-in-law and adviser to trump Jared Kushner at the end of 2016, suggested the use of a secret channel of communication between Moscow and the transition staff of President-elect. Three days later, Fox News channel reported that the initiative to establish a secret channel of communication came from Sergei Kislyak.

In Moscow the idea of it was absurd.
