Rand Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin in Russian Federation

Rand Paul delivers letter from Trump to Putin in Russian Federation

Paul said in a statement on Wednesday.

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

"I was honoured to deliver a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin's administration". The Kentucky Republican also met Sergey Kislyak, Russia's former envoy to Washington, and former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev.

The letter comes three weeks after Trump met with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, sparking a backlash in both parties after his initial refusal to side with the US intelligence community over Russian denials about meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Paul, who defended Trump in the wake of his summit with Putin last month in Helsinki, has been visiting Russian Federation with a delegation for several days.

The document fails to address questions raised about what the Russian government meant last month when it said "cooperation in Syria" would be discussed between the two presidents and what they agreed to as a result. Trump invited Putin to D.C. this fall.

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.

On Monday, Rep. Massie tweeted, "This may be why the only type of diplomacy the GOP & Dem establishment understands is either a full-on war or a cold war or sanctions".

Paul later announced his own trip to Russian Federation, saying that he hoped to better relations between the two countries.
