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.

Peskov dodged a question about Trump's news conference Thursday in which the president blamed the media for trying to thwart his plan to improve ties with Moscow.

The two men have never met, but both have said they want to try to mend battered US-Russia ties, which fell to their lowest level since the Cold War after Moscow's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea.

At his White House news conference, Trump denied that his campaign aides had been in touch with Russian officials before the US election and said he had "nothing to do with Russia".

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

BBC Russia correspondent Steve Rosenberg tweeted a headline in the Russian papers on Friday that read, "You have to be drunk to understand the U.S. President's true position", highlighting the shift in the Russian media's coverage of Trump.

The daily Komsomolskaya Pravda noted the difference between Trump's criticism of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation during the campaign and his expressions of support for the alliance once in office and suggested a stiff drink might make it clearer.

"There is no agreement on a meeting nor a clear understanding yet", the Interfax news agency quoted Ushakov as saying. "Some of the most popular TV segments on Trump touched on ideas the Kremlin would rather not promote, such as his pledge to 'drain the swamp, '" they report.
