Moscow says regrets UK poisoning death

  Moscow says regrets UK poisoning death A Kremlin spokesman has expressed condolences over the death of a British woman who was poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent last month. Dmitry Peskov told reporters Monday that Moscow "is deeply concerned over the continuous cases of these poison elements" in Britain. Peskov added that such attacks present a danger not only inside the UK, but also in Europe as a whole.

Europe . Amid accusations of bullying and blackmail, the US and Israel have continued their furious efforts to persuade countries to back Trump ’s position, amid predictions that more than 150 of the 193 countries in the general assembly could vote against the US.

Europe . Kremlin representatives have repeatedly denied the allegations. Mr Putin's spokesman said the forthcoming report would be analysed. Last year, US President Donald Trump enacted new sanctions on Russia but he accused Congress of overreaching itself and preventing him from easing

Trump told Germany at a NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday it was wrong to support an $US11 billion ($16.25 billion NZD) Baltic Sea pipeline to import more Russian gas while being slow to meet NATO targets for defence spending.

Trump's comments came ahead of his summit on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, though the Kremlin said they were unlikely to have an impact on what was always going to be a difficult meeting due to the number of disagreements between the two countries.

Trump wins sympathy from Russian media ahead of summit

  Trump wins sympathy from Russian media ahead of summit U.S. President Donald Trump is no fan of American journalists, but he might love what the Russian media are saying about him ahead of his meeting Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin. U.S. President Donald Trump is no fan of American journalists, but he might love what the Russian media are saying about him ahead of his meeting Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The Kremlin has ridiculed reports that Russia collected compromising material on the US president-elect, Donald Trump , as unfounded and laughable. Vladimir Putin. Europe . US politics.

Hours later the White House issued a muted response, calling the Kremlin actions “a further deterioration” in United States-Russia relations. Wary of picking a fight with the whole of Europe , however, Russia has focused its fury on London and Washington, accusing them of strong-arming

Russia is keen to press ahead with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline since it has the potential to double its gas exports under the Baltic Sea to Germany, bypassing traditional routes through Ukraine.

However, Washington opposes the project and a spokesman for the US State Department said on Wednesday Western firms invested in the pipeline were at risk of sanctions.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Trump's statement marked an escalation of a US campaign to talk down Russian gas supplies to Europe in an attempt to push the US energy sector instead.

"As for Germany's dependence (on Russia) as a major gas buyer we cannot agree with this premise," Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

"Supplies of pipeline gas do not lead to dependence of one country on another but to complete mutual dependence. That is a guarantee of stability and future development."

Peskov said Moscow regarded US objections to the new pipeline as "unfair competition" aimed at trying to force European countries to buy costlier US liquefied natural gas.
