The press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov announced that the head of the Russian state Vladimir Putin and the US president-elect Donald Trump haven’t discussed the occupied Crimea and Donbas, according to Interfax.
According to Peskov, they had a constructive dialogue.
“In general, the tone of the conversation was in line with those statements made during the (Trump’s, - ed.) campaign about Russian-American relations,” said Peskov.
“But the issues you specify were not addressed. Barack Obama remains the President in office and we continue working just with him until the inauguration (of the new president of America, - ed.)” noted Peskov.
It is also reported that Putin and Trump never agreed to meet prior the inauguration.
“The probability of the future meeting was addressed, however there is no agreement that the meeting takes place prior the inauguration,” said Dmitry Peskov.
Earlier, Trump said that he received a "wonderful" letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin, adding that they will be holding a telephone conversation soon.
