CNN is doing the best to start a feud. The spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin is expressing frustration with the inconclusive first two months of relations between Moscow and the Trump administration. The election of President Trump, who had spoken admiringly of Putin and called for improved US-Russia relations, had raised hopes in the Kremlin. But Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov says there are no signs of progress yet. Unfortunately, we dont have a better understanding of when this dialogue can begin, Peskov said in an interview with CNNs Fareed Zakaria broadcast Sunday.
Mr. Trumps campaign statements on Russia had led to speculation that the United States would drop sanctions imposed on Russia for its interference in Ukraine. Peskov also reacted to allegations of Russian meddling in U.S. elections, dismissing an assessment by the U.S. intelligence community concluding with high confidence that Russia had interfered in the 2016 campaign in order to help Mr. Trump.
We dont know whats the reason for these words. Weve never seen any evidence, and weve never heard something trustful, Peskov said. What we have seen -- an open, a public part -- of a report by one of the agencies, special agencies of the United States. And I would humbly say that its not a paper of high quality, in terms of being really trustful.
CNN is trying to make Washington and Moscow
fight each other.
