UN Peacekeepers in Ukraine May Have Small Arms - Russia's Draft Resolution

WASHINGTON - In the third month of Donald Trump's presidency, Vladimir Putin dispatched one of his diplomats to the State Department to deliver a bold proposition: the full normalization of relations between the United States and Russian Federation across all major branches of government. "Moscow consistently came out for the resumption of dialogue, for the exchange of opinions, for trying to find joint resolutions, but, unfortunately, was not met here with reciprocity".

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told BuzzFeed she could not confirm any conversations regarding the Russian proposal, but that the USA was in favor of improving relations with Russia.

Asked about the report, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert would neither confirm nor deny its accuracy.

We have discussed here in the past how Russian Federation is training North Korean students in transportation and logistics, providing fuel, and has opened a dedicated ferry line to move supplies, all starting earlier this year when Trump assumed the presidency and met with Chinese President Xi regarding the North Korean problem.

The Russian Embassy in Washington would not comment on the document. The meeting was their third of the year to discuss so-called "irritants" in the relationship.

Amid the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, Putin's desired reset was stopped in its tracks.

Russian Federation responded in kind to the US' sanctions after several months delay and ordered large cuts in the USA diplomatic staff in Russian Federation.

He also thanked Putin for forcing the United States to reduce its diplomatic staff in a comment the White House later described as sarcastic.
