    Moscow is not commenting on the publication claiming that the US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has allegedly been engaged in attracting US investment in the Russian Skolkovo Innovation Center while being US secretary of state, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On July 31, The Wall Street Journal reported that US presidential candidate from the Democratic Party Clinton, while serving as the 67th secretary of state, was attracting US investment in the Russian Skolkovo Innovation Center, a move that might "have substantially undermined U.S. national security."

    During Clinton’s tenure, the US State Department promoted the establishment and development of the Russian version of Silicon Valley.

    "No, I cannot comment anyhow on this and do not assess it. If it was, it was good. It is a well-known and world-renowned School of Skolkovo, so, undoubtedly, Skolkovo has a large number of international contacts. And if there are (contacts) with the United States as well on the Skolkovo line, it is to be welcomed," Peskov told reporters.

    He added that he had no information on the kind of support allegedly provided by Clinton and her office at that time.
