Kremlin denies Ivanka sitting on Putin’s chair

Russian presidential press spokesman Dmitry Piskov denied claims by a US businessman about organizing a tour of Ivanka, the daughter of US President Donald Trump, including President Vladimir Putin’s office and allowing her to sit in his chair.

“This is not true,” Piskov told reporters on Wednesday.

The American newspaper The New York Times last Monday published an e-mail written in 2015 by US businessman Felix Satter to Donald Trump’s lawyer, Mishal Cohen, in which he talked about Ivanka and her brother Donald Trump Jr.’s visit to Moscow in 2006.

The message indicates that during the visit Ivanka was able to sit in Putin’s personal chair in his office in the Kremlin. Ivanka herself was quoted as saying that she actually took a short tour of the Red Square and the Kremlin in 2006. The daughter of the US president did not comment on the news of her sitting in the chair of the Russian president, but confirmed that she never met President Vladimir Putin
