MOSCOW, December 5. /TASS/. The Kremlin sees no breakthrough in the investigation into Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 presidential election led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and moreover, some conclusions raise many questions, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Wednesday.
"We don’t know what breakthrough could be there [in the investigation]," Peskov said. "What is available for the public mainly arouses misunderstanding. We have repeatedly cited the examples that these accusations are absurd." Peskov noted the US special counsel’s investigation is not a priority matter for the Kremlin. "We’ve got enough to worry about," he added.
Earlier, former Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn shared information with Mueller on interactions between individuals in Trump’s transition team and Russian authorities.
According a memo filed in the US court in the District of Columbia, Flynn gave Mueller "first-hand" details on contacts between Trump’s transition team and Russian government officials. In February, Flynn was forced to resign over failure to provide all details to Vice President Mike Pence on his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, former Russia’s Ambassador to the US. In early December last year, the former presidential adviser pleaded guilty to lying about these conversations.
Trump and his key assistants have repeatedly rejected allegations of their illegal contacts with Russian officials during the 2016 election campaign. Moscow has refuted many times the claims on its attempts to influence the US vote.
