Advisor to US President-elect Donald Trump, Carter Page, arrived in Moscow to have several meetings with Russian politicians and businessmen. Carter will stay in Moscow till December 13, RIA Novosti said.
Earlier, Page said that the administration of the US President elect needed people who believed in the potential of Russian-American relations. According to him, a dialogue between the countries would be impossible if the United States could not trust Russian President Vladimir Putin.
In the past, Carter Page worked in the Moscow office of Merrill Lynch. In June, Page praised Russian President Putin as a stronger leader than US President Obama. When in Moscow a month later, Page criticised the US-led foreign policy.
