TV channel ABCNews with reference to Yahoo News reports that American intelligence said it was "inspecting the goals of Carter Page’s trips to Russia." The report says that the adviser to Donald Trump is an expert on the countries of the Caspian region, as well as on trade relations with the countries of the post-Soviet space.
An American intelligence official said that Page was visiting Moscow this summer. In particular, in July, he visited one of Moscow law schools, where he held a series of meetings "with Russian officials."
Based on this, the US has already put forward conspiracy hypotheses regarding the fact that Trump allegedly sent his adviser to Russia with the intention of discussing the issues of lifting sanctions "from representatives of Vladimir Putin’s entourage."
An amusing situation ... If earlier visits by US officials caused considerable concern in Russia, based on the well-known activities of individual representatives of overseas bureaucrats to spread the “orange” revolutions, now the visits are causing a strong negative reaction in Washington itself.
