The Kremlin spokesman called for ignoring media speculations alleging the Moscow’s ambassador to the United States was a “top spy”.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov urged on Thursday to pay no mind to media reports citing unnamed sources which claim that Russian Ambassador to the United States Sergei Kislyak could be a spy and a recruiter.

“These are once again anonymous media speculations which constantly work up this situation. The only thing that can be offered to all in this situation is simply not to respond to these anonymous, unfounded false stories, and be guided only by official

statements,” Peskov told reporters.

The CNN broadcaster cited anonymous US government officials as saying earlier Thursday that US intelligence views Kislyak as a “top spy” and “spy-recruiter.”

The Kremlin does not know about meetings of Kislyak with US Attorney General Jeff Sessions when the latter was a senator, Peskov said.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that Sessions spoke to Kislyak twice last year while he was a US senator and part of US President Donald Trump’s campaign despite denying any contacts with the Russians at his confirmation hearing in January.
