MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A State Department spokesperson told Sputnik early Tuesday that Tillerson planned to travel to Russia in April, following media reports naming April 12 as the date of his visit.
"Let us wait when there are official statements on this matter. Not Reuters statements, but when the State Department and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will finally report on the visit," Peskov told reporters.

The US Embassy in Russia stated that there is no official confirmation of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's reported visit to Russia, an embassy spokesperson said Tuesday.
