Kremlin says ties with US cannot get any worse under Pompeo

MOSCOW: The Kremlin on Wednesday said ties with america may no longer get any worse below next Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, after the sacking of Rex Tillerson.
"It's hardly possible to fall below the floor, so it is unlikely things will get any worse in this regard," President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a reaction to a query about the high-level group of workers adjustments in america administration introduced on Tuesday.

"In any case there of course remains the hope of a constructive and sober approach to bilateral ties. There is always this hope," Peskov said at a standard press briefing.

Tillerson in his farewell remarks this week warned Washington should do extra to respond to Russia's "troubling behaviour and actions."


"Russia must assess carefully as to how its actions are in the best interests of the Russian people and of the world more broadly," he said.


"Continuing on their current trajectory is likely to lead to greater isolation on their part, a situation which is not in anyone's interest."


The US has accused Russia of actively interfering in the 2016 presidential election, stealing Democratic party communications and pushing out disinformation thru social media, claims Moscow denies.


Pompeo said in his earlier role as CIA director that the agency had observed Russian activity to steer the following US election cycle, the November mid-terms.
