The claims that Russia has any influence on Donald Trump are absurd, Kremlin’s press-secretary Dmitry Peskov said. He added that Moscow actually struggles to predict the actions of the US administration, which complicates ties. Russiagate is “really a witch hunt” and those witches “don’t exist,” President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman said as he met with MGIMO University students in Moscow. “Of course, it’s nonsense that Russia has any influence on Trump,” Peskov said, expanding on the Russian collusion accusations against the US leader. On the contrary, Moscow has some real problems in forecasting the Trump administration’s erratic moves, Peskov admitted. “One can say that certain unpredictability in the actions of the current [US] administration is obvious and it seriously complicates relations” between Moscow and Washington, he complained.
