Russia Says It Hopes US Wouldn’t Release Transcripts Of Trump-Putin Calls





A Kremlin spokesman expressed concern that the U.S. could publish transcripts of calls between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin following the public release this week of a readout of a call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The spokesman told reporters on a press call that such an action could harm already “troubled” U.S.-Russia relations, the Associated Press reported.

“We would like to hope that it wouldn’t come to that in our relations, which are already troubled by a lot of problems,” said Dmitry Peskov.



“The materials related to conversations between heads of states are usually classified according to normal international practice,” he added.

A spokeswoman for Russia’s foreign ministry accused Democrats including Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) of turning the U.S. into a laughingstock.

“Is it the Democrats’ job to make a laughingstock of the United States?” she asked, according to the AP. “It’s exactly what Ms. Pelosi has done to Congress, the White House and other state institutions.”
