This week, nothing has changed in this world: Trump is still being attacked by the American and international media, while the mention of Russia is still constantly revolving around the U.S. President-elect.

As ex-MI6 officer claims Russia has compromising material against U.S. President-elect Donald Trump, the real estate mogul himself says chief US spy called him to denounce the claims.

While Trump is being heavily criticized for his Cabinet picks, the U.S. President-elect, who enters the White House on January 20, blasts ‘stupid people’ and ‘fools’ for thinking friendly US-Russia ties is a bad idea.

Even though Trump’s presidency is expected to improve US-Russia ties, Moscow is still pushing for tensions with the West and says US tanks and troops stationed in Poland is a ‘threat’.
