MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. A highly emotional atmosphere surrounds the situation concerning the alleged contacts between the US officials with Russian representatives, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters commenting on the calls to probe into the alleged contacts between members of the Trump administration and Russia.
"I don’t think we should evaluate this issue," Peskov said when asked if the current situation was reminiscent of the McCarthyism practice.
"We see a highly emotional atmosphere. But before making any evaluations, we should wait for everyone to calm down and the situation to stabilize," the Russian presidential spokesman said.
Kremlin spokesman added that he did not know whether Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak had held any meetings with incumbent US Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
"I don’t know about any meetings [between Kislyak and Sessions]," the Kremlin spokesman said, commenting on US media reports on contacts held by the head of the Russian diplomatic mission with Sessions last year.
The Kremlin spokesman drew attention to the fact that the ambassador’s work generally consisted in holding as many meetings as possible with representatives of both the executive and the legislative branch of the country of the ambassador's residence.
"The more such meetings the ambassador holds, the more effectively he works. This relates to any ambassador," Peskov exlpained.
As Peskov noted, the US ambassador in Moscow "has lots of contacts with deputies of the Federal Assembly of Russia and this is absolutely normal."
