The controversy surrounding Donald Trump and Russia has been an issue that has been raised since the early days of the 2016 presidential election. After the latest reports claim Attorney General Jeff Sessions had communication with Kremlin officials during the campaign, at least one Russian official is not willing to talk about it.

Since the start of his campaign for president, there have been two issues that have remained hanging over Donald Trump's head; his feud with the mainstream media, and his potential link to Russia. Over the last year and a half, reports have continued to circulate about Russia's involvement in the election, which was confirmed by multiple sources that they hacked into the Democratic National Committee with the goal of helping Trump into the White House.

As expected, Trump and Russia have denied the allegations, despite evidence pushing back to the contrary. Just two weeks after retired Gen. Michae Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor due to his illegal communication with Russian officials, current Attorney General Jeff Sessions was exposed by the Washington Post on Tuesday night to have spoken with the Russian ambassador at least twice in the last eight months. As reported on March 2, CNN sent a reporter to discus the issue with a high-ranking Russian official, but it didn't go over well.

Matthew Chance, CNN's Senior International Correspondent, attempted to speak with Maria Zakharova, the Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman, about the latest links between her country and the Donald Trump campaign.

As expected, the conversation didn't go well, as Zakharova became frustrated, and eventually ran off. When Zakharova was asked about Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, who the United States has accused of being a spy, the interview took a turn for the worst.

"CNN accused him of being Russian spy!" Maria Zakharova said of Kislyak.

While Matthew Chance attempted to clarify that it was the United States government who believed Kislyak was a spy, Zakharva ignored the information, and continued to bash CNN. "Stop spreading lies and false news," she said while running from the camera, before adding, "This is good advice to CNN." In her last comments on the matter, Zakharova shouted again, "Please, stop spreading lies and false news!"
