Russia thinks Trump cancelled Putin meeting for domestic reasons

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia believes U.S. President Donald Trump cancelled his meeting with Vladimir Putin due to domestic issues rather than the Ukraine situation, its foreign ministry said on Friday.

“Is the provocation started by Kiev in this area (Azov Sea) a real reason for the cancellation? We heard that as an official version and we accepted that. Is it a real one? I believe we should look for answers in the U.S. domestic political situation,” spokeswoman Maria Zakharova was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.
