US senators, on Moscow trip, invite Russian lawmakers to Washington

The Day After Trump Admits to Attempted Collusion, Rand Paul Invites Russian Delegation to Washington

Today, I met with Chairman Kosachev, and we agreed on the importance of continued dialogue.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said Monday that he secured an agreement from Konstantin Kosachev, the Russian Federation's Foreign Affairs Committee chairman, to send a delegation of Russian government officials to the U.S.

The "main aim of the trip" was to "create a dialogue" and "improve relations" between Moscow and Washington, Paul added.

Sen. Paul defended Trump's meeting with Putin amid backlash from Democrats, establishment Republicans, and the mainstream media.

In a statement, the conservancy said: "While encounters like this one are rare, this video shows that they're certainly possible". Great white sharks eat 11 tons of food a year while the average human eats closer to half a ton of food each year.


Kosachev said that while no plans have been finalized, "certain specific subjects in the development of this co-operation" had been addressed during Paul's visit, adding that he hoped a meeting between the Senate and the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs could be held before the end of the year.

The Kentucky senator has been an outspoken proponent for engagement with Moscow who voiced support for Donald Trump's decision to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki last month.

He said he saw the current trip by U.S. senators to Moscow as "especially valuable when other American politicians are making efforts to portray any contact with Russian politicians as toxic". "And it will certainly not happen during the ongoing election campaign, either, " he told reporters, referring to the midterms, Interfax reported.

Rand Paul later met with Russia's deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov.

The same can not be said of the Carr Fire, which is raging farther north, in Shasta County; it has claimed seven lives to date. Several fire experts, however, said the comments don't address the main factor in fire severity: human-caused climate change.


A bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation last week to impose "crushing sanctions" on Russian Federation for interfering in United States elections, amid warnings that November's midterm elections may be targeted.

The senator announced his planned trip just hours after President Trump concluded a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where Trump cast doubt on the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

"There was no meddling in 2016".

"We had general discussions about a lot of issues", Paul responded.
