Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov commented on the first public hearing on the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
On Monday, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey and NSA Director Admiral Michael Rogers testified in front of the House Intelligence Committee on the alleged Russian interference in the US presidential election.
Peskov said that the participants of the US hearing on the alleged Russian role in the November 2016 vote in the US are entangled in the situation and are "making a go-around."
Moreover, Peskov declined to comment on FBI Director James Comey's assessment that Russia purportedly concluded Donald Trump was a "hopeless" candidate against Hillary Clinton.
"This is more of a permanent internal discussion in the US, and we would like to stay on the sidelines of these fruitless discussions."
The hearing does not contribute to the development of bilateral ties, Peskov added.
"Unequivocally, it can hardly be considered a constructive contribution to the development of bilateral relations," Peskov told reporters of the House Intelligence Committee hearings on Monday.
