MOSCOW Oct 5 The Kremlin said on Wednesday it
regretted the fact that Russia and President Vladimir Putin had
become what it called an inseparable part of the U.S. election
campaign, saying it was fed up with Russia usually being
presented in a negative light.
It made the comments after Republican presidential candidate
Donald Trump said a day earlier that Russia had broken a deal
with the United States over a ceasefire in Syria and that Putin
did not respect U.S. leaders.
"Of course we would like our country to be mentioned only
positively, but to our regret we know that the Russian card and
mentioning our president have practically become an inseparable
part of America's election campaign," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry
Peskov told a conference call with reporters.
