“The Russian deputy foreign minister said Thursday that representatives of the Russian government were in contact with members of the Trump campaign during the presidential election.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told the Russian state-run news agency Interfax that “there were contacts” with Trump’s team throughout the campaign, according to the Washington Post.

Ryabkov said communications “were on a sufficient, responsible level” and that they were “part of routine everyday work,” according to Bloomberg News.

Trump campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks told the Post in an email that “The campaign had no contact with Russian officials.”

However, Ryabkov said “I cannot say that all of them but quite a few have been staying in touch with Russian representatives,” referring to “people from his entourage,” according to the same report.”
