Trump Advisor in Moscow for Talks      04/18 06:29

   The Kremlin spokesman says a U.S. presidential adviser has traveled to 
Russia for talks.

   MOSCOW (AP) -- The Kremlin spokesman says a U.S. presidential adviser has 
traveled to Russia for talks.

   Spokesman Dmitry Peskov says Thursday that Fiona Hill, Special Assistant to 
U.S. President Donald Trump, held talks in Moscow on Wednesday with several 
Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser.

   A U.S. embassy official who asked to be unnamed because the statements about 
Hill's visits should be made by the National Security Council confirmed the 
visit to the Associated Press.

   Peskov said Hill and Russian officials discussed bilateral issues but did 
not discuss a potential meeting between Putin and Trump.

   The news comes on the day that the U.S. Justice Department is expected to 
release a redacted version of the special counsel's report on Russian election 
interference and Trump's campaign.
