Trump's election was hailed in Russian Federation as a possible new beginning between Washington and Moscow.

When asked about it on Monday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told a conference call with reporters that Flynn and Kislyak had not discussed lifting sanctions on Moscow.

Putin added that foreign intelligence agencies continue intensive operations in Russian Federation.
