Kremlin pins American senator’s harsh swipe at Russia on US Deep State ‘pressure’


The Kremlin attributed the critical remarks by US Senator John Kennedy, who compared the Russian authorities with the mafia, to Russophobic pressure inside the United States and stereotypes of Russia, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, APA reported citing TASS.

 

"We don’t wear rose-colored glasses and we are well aware of the extent, to which the American Establishment is being held hostage to stereotypes and is under the heaviest domestic anti-Russian pressure," Peskov said in response to a journalists’ request to comment on Kennedy’s remarks.

 

A U.S. senator who just returned from a congressional trip to Russia warned against trusting President Vladimir Putin, saying that dealing with the Russian government is like "dealing with the mafia."

 

Sen. John Kennedy, recently went with other GOP senators to see first-hand the Russian economy and meet with government officials. But the meetings, ahead of President Donald Trump's planned summit with Putin on July 16, turned "cantankerous" at times, he said. He described Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov as a "bully."
