    VTB Bank Management Board Chair Andrey Kostin said Thursday that neither he nor other VTB officials met or discussed anything with US President Donald Trump's ex-advisers Paul Manafort or Michael Flynn.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In May Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort and aide Roger Stone have turned over to the US Senate Intelligence Committee the documents regarding their alleged dealings with Russia.

    The committee has also requested documents from Trump campaign's former foreign policy adviser Carter Page and national security adviser Michael Flynn.    

    "It is nonsense. Absolutely not," Kostin told Bloomberg TV when asked if ongoing US investigations would uncover "any evidence" of his meetings or discussions with "persons of interest."

    Russian officials refuted the allegations of meddling in the 2016 US presidential election and called the accusations Washington's attempts to divert public attention from serious problems in the country.
