According to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump did not discuss the Crimea or the war in eastern Ukraine during their phone conversation on Monday, TASS reported.
Responding a question of whether Putin and Trump discussed Ukraine and the Crimea, Peskov answered, “No, it was not discussed.”
“Once again, it was a very constructive conversation,” Peskov stated. “The whole tone of the conversation largely corresponded with the tone of the statements that were made even during the election campaign [promoting] bilateral Russian-American relations.”
The Kremlin spokesman added that while no solid plans have been made for Putin and Trump to meet before the latter’s inauguration in January, the possibility of such a meeting has been discussed.
