    Moscow regrets that negative references to Russia have become a mandatory feature of US election campaigns, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump published his presidential campaign clip, where Russian President Vladimir Putin is pictured practicing judo and being called "the toughest opponent."

    "It's no secret that the ‘demonization of Russia’ and all that is connected with Russia, unfortunately, is an essential feature of the US election campaign. We always deeply regret it and wish electoral processes would do without such references to our country," Peskov told reporters.

    The spokesman added that the Kremlin had seen the video and had negative reaction to it.

    "I do not know yet if Vladimir Putin has seen [the video]," Peskov said.
