Lavrov sees nothing illegal in former Trump campaign staffer's Russian contacts

House committee to question former Trump bodyguard over Russia dossier report

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that "so far Russian Federation doesn't figure in any way in these charges which have been made" and that Russian Federation hopes that they do not feed "hysteria". From what we have read in the media and seen in the participants' statements to the process, Russian Federation does not appear in the charges that have been brought forward, other countries and people are appearing there.

He said he hoped the continuing Russian Federation investigation would not add to the "already overblown, hysterical Russophobia".

Lavrov's comments come after a special prosecutor's probe into Russia's possible meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and potential ties between the Trump campaign team and the Kremlin enters new territory.

He expressed hope that "wisdom will eventually prevail". Gates and Manafort pleaded not guilty to the charges against them Monday, shortly after the indictments were unsealed.

Saudi Arabia reshuffles cabinet after ministers detained
Saudi nationals have long complained of rampant corruption in government and of public funds being squandered or misused by people in power.

Instead, their efforts "resulted" in the indictment of two former Trump campaign members in connection with their alleged dealings with a former president of Ukraine, Russia's foreign minister pointed out.

"This is a completely laughable accusation, a laughable statement, unqualified (statement), again, unfounded, unsubstantiated, and this is how we treat it", he continued.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says allegations that Moscow played a hand in President Jacob Zuma's recent Cabinet reshuffle are fantasy.

The U.S. investigation was an internal matter for the United States, said Peskov, but Moscow was following it with interest. "I have not seen the indictments that had been put forward, but if Mr. Papadopoulos wanted to meet Mr. Timofeyev - I'm not personally acquainted to any of them - then, if the meeting in question was to focus on Russian-US relations, I don't see anything illegitimate, illegal, unlawful here".

"Without a single piece of proof, we are as you know being accused of meddling not only in the U.S. election, but also in those in European states", the Interfax news agency quoted Mr Lavrov as telling a briefing at the Association of European Businesses in Russian Federation on Tuesday (local time).

Lavrov also confirmed Tuesday that French President Emmanuel Macron has accepted an invitation to visit Moscow in 2018, according to the state-run news agency Interfax.

The US intelligence community is in agreement that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election. Macron won a resounding victory against her.
