MOSCOW, 12 APR — RIA Novosti. The emergence of new publications in the American media on the topic of Russian influence in the elections of the President of the United States was triggered by the recent meeting of heads of States Vladimir Putin and Donald trump, said press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.
First personal meeting of Putin and trump took place on 7 July on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg.
“All this is another round that is understandable immediately appeared after holding a bilateral meeting. Overall, of course, reminiscent of a long-running series that can compete with the most successful series that are in the United States of America. I repeat, do not need somehow to draw us into this series in the series are playing,” said Peskov told reporters.
Asked by journalists to specify what genre of TV series like this, Peskov said:
Let’s cinematic discussions still leave beyond… Not so much the television series, which resemble what is now happening in the United States. Try to guess.
In the US popular TV series “house of cards” is about the power struggle in the American political elite. It comes out in 2013, recently it became known that the series was renewed for a fifth season.
Earlier, CNN reported, citing a source, that spectacular for investigation of “Russian intervention” in U.S. elections Robert Mueller intends to explore e-mailing the President’s son — trump-Junior lawyer of the Russian Federation. The New York Times earlier reported that a lawyer from Russia Natalia Veselnitskaya, which supposedly has “ties to the Kremlin”, in 2016, met with trump Jr., stating that it had dirt on Hillary Clinton. Veselnitskaya she said that never worked for the Russian government. She also denied information that suggested any dirt on Clinton. Trump Jr. described the meeting as “empty” and noted that he had not mentioned her to his father. According to him, when meeting with Veselnitskaya “it quickly became clear that she had no relevant information”.
Peskov stressed that Veselnitskaya could not represent Russia.
“The lawyer is the Russian state if it is involved in the case on behalf of the Russian state, where Russian state acts or by the Complainant or the Respondent, in this case on this question. Therefore, this question, this wording is inappropriate and absurd,” — said the press Secretary of the Russian President.
