Russian President Vladimir Putin was informed about the incident with a US drone, APA reports.
There were no contacts at the highest level between Moscow and Washington, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.
"If you mean the highest level, no, there were no contacts. Well, how do you imagine that the head of state, the supreme commander-in-chief, was not informed about the incident, of course this cannot be. Of course, it was reported," Peskov told reporters.
Commenting on a possible impact of the incident on the Russia-US relations, the official said that Russia never shied away from constructive dialogue with the United States, noting that Moscow does not reject it now.
