Kremlin: Donald Trump’s pre-election video demonizes Russia

, 12:29 PM IST

Moscow: On Thursday, Kremlin bounced back on a pre-election video promoting US presidential candidate Donald Trump, complaining it demonized Russia’s image.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov at a teleconference with reporters said, “I saw this clip. I do not know for sure if (President) Vladimir Putin saw it. (But) our attitude is negative”

“It’s an open secret for us that demonizing Russia and whatever is linked to Russia is unfortunately a mandatory hallmark of America’s election campaign. We always sincerely regret this and wish the (US) electoral process was conducted without such references to our country.”
