Kremlin Hopes US 'Obsession With Russian Factor' to End Soon


Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Russian Federation hoped that Trump's move would not affect ties with the United States.

A Kremlin spokesman said that Moscow regrets America's "emotional obsession" with Russian Federation but will be patient because they believe "the obsession will end soon".

Answering the question whether such a political atmosphere may affect the upcoming meeting of Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump, Peskov said that the Russian "president has repeatedly expressed readiness for such meetings and the readiness to move further along the path of development of our relations as deeply as our partners in Washington are ready for it".

Peskov also asserted that the Russian government has "never interfered in US internal affairs and are not going to do it in the future".

As Putin's longtime aid and spokesman, Peskov has an ear planted firmly onto the ground in Moscow; he's more than informed enough to speak to the Russian government's mood on this issue.

Peskov's comments come two days after President Trump met with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov and ambassador Sergey Kislyak and discussed building the relationship between the two countries as well as ending the conflict in Syria.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet his USA counterpart Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in July in Hamburg, Germany.

Meanwhile, the new administration has been beleaguered over its Russian Federation connection. That's the United States' internal affair.

"Under the terms of the collaborative work between the Russian Foreign Ministry and TASS news agency, I provided some of my photo materials for free publications on the foreign ministry's official page and to other sources".

The Kremlin-Washington relations significantly deteriorated during the last US regime as former president Barack Obama passed many anti-Russia sanctions.
