The American delegation in Davos is deliberately avoiding informal meetings with their Russian counterparts due to the ongoing investigation of the alleged «Russian intervention» in U.S. elections, the head of AmCham Alexis Rodzianko.

Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who heads the Russian delegation at the world economic forum, said Wednesday that he is ready for dialogue with the U.S. delegation in Davos, but the Americans avoided representatives of the Russian delegation at the forum and hide from debate.

«I don’t know, but my guess is that this is as it should be — because now, when the investigation reaches its climax in the United States, Trump and his administration better once informal not to meet. If we are to meet, then very formally, orderly, and well-trained. I’m sure it is, and I understand why this is so,» said Rodzianko RIA Novosti on the sidelines of the WEF.

In the U.S. Congress are investigations about «Russian intervention» in U.S. presidential election, won by Donald trump. A similar investigation leads the FBI. The American media regularly reports, citing unnamed sources on the contacts of the members of the electoral headquarters of the trump with Russian officials and businessmen. Russia has repeatedly denied accusations of meddling in elections in the United States. Press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov called them «completely unfounded».

According to Rodzianko Russia’s participation in Davos this year, more active, and the attitude of the Russian delegation from the US — more relaxed. «The attitude of Russia to something more quiet. As the American Ambassador said, «we seem to have reached stability»- at a very low level, but the stability,» — said the head of the AmCham.
