Press secretary of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Peskov explained that the meeting of Jared Kushner with the head of the Russian Vnesheconombank Sergei Gorkov in December last year was part of the "routine business activities." This is reported by Radio Liberty.

Peskov said that "dozens of meetings were held and one of them was with Kushner's company and with him. This is an ordinary business," he concluded.

According to Peskov, such meetings were not coordinated with the Kremlin and are the "exclusive prerogative" of the bank's management.

Earlier Senate Intelligence Committee reported that the son-in-law and chief advisor of Donald Trump will testify in an investigation about Russian intervention in the US presidential election in 2016.

The New York Times reported yesterday that Jared Kushner had met with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak after Trump won in the November elections, and also that Kislyak had asked for another meeting, to which Kouchner sent his assistant.

Later, Trump's son-in-law met with the head of Vnesheconombank Sergei Gorkov.

Representative of the White House Hope Hicks said that the meetings were "insignificant".
