The Kremlin confirms that Putin and Trump will speak over the phone on Saturday

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart Donald Trump plan to speak over the phone on Saturday, according to Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, TASS reported.

"Yes, I confirm this," Peskov said when I asked about US media reports that the two leaders would speak on Saturday.

In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Trump said "He [Putin] called me after I won, but I haven’t had a discussion, but I understand we will be having a discussion soon.”

US intelligence services have determined that the Russian government attempted to influence the US presidential elections in favor of Donald Trump.

Many in the US have suggested that Trump may lift sanctions on Russia.
