Letter from Trump delivered to Putin during senator's visit

The document fails to address questions raised

Paul announced the delivery Wednesday afternoon while meeting with various Russian leaders throughout the week.

Trump has pushed for easing tensions between the former Cold War foes, exacerbated by USA intelligence findings that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election, trying to tilt the outcome to Trump. Trump sparked outrage by accepting Putin's word over that of his intelligence agencies at a Helsinki news conference.

During the last month's summit in Helsinki, Putin and US President Donald Trump held a two-hour private meeting including only themselves and their translators.

Paul has been in Russia this week and has met with Russian lawmakers in a trip he sees as a continuation of Trump's diplomatic outreach to Putin.

On a trip to Russian Federation this week aimed at boosting engagement with the US adversary, Paul said Wednesday he was "honored" to deliver the missive which he said "emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges". "In the letter, the President mentioned topics of interest that Senator Paul wanted to discuss with President Putin", deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement to pool reporters.


The White House had no immediate comment on the letter. But Peskov said the Kremlin had not familiarized itself with the contents.

Such issues have been discussed between U.S. and Russian leaders for decade, but they have since been overshadowed by an array of controversies including Syria, Ukraine and claims of Russia's meddling in Mr Trump's 2016 election campaign.

The three Trump supporters said they were comfortable with the widely panned display from the US president, and proceeded to clash with the dissenters.

Further U.S. sanctions on Russian Federation over alleged election meddling, Syria and Ukraine could lead to a deeper rift and are hurting Russia's rouble.
