MOSCOW (WKYT) - Sen. Rand Paul, R - Ky., says he has delivered a letter on behalf of President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Paul announced the delivery Wednesday afternoon while meeting with various Russian leaders throughout the week.

“I was honored to deliver a letter from President Donald J. Trump to President Vladimir Putin’s administration,” Paul said, “The letter emphasized the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges.”

The Kentucky Republican says Russian and American lawmakers need to work closer than before, saying the lack of dialogue is the biggest problem between the two countries.

The senator has been one of President Trump's most vocal supporters of Russian policy following the Helsinki summit where both world leaders met.
