The release of a transcript of US President Donald Trump’s phone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky is an unusual move, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday, but declined to further comment on the matter, APA reports citing TASS.

"I won’t give any comment on this matter, this is an absolutely domestic affair between the US and Ukraine, moreover that this [release] was made upon a mutual agreement," Peskov said.

"But in general, I will admit that certainly the release of a full transcript of the conversation (both during a phone call or a meeting) is not common practice in diplomatic and interstate affairs, at least until now," Peskov noted.
