United States President Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday (Feb 15) called upon Russian Federation to return the annexed Crimea to Ukraine.
"Probably Putin assumes that he's not going to be able to make a deal with me because it's politically not popular for me to make a deal", he said.
A story that posted in The New York Times late Tuesday reported that members of his presidential campaign, as well as other Trump associates, were repeatedly in contact with senior Russian intelligence officials during the campaign.
Ms Zakharova said: "We don't return our territories".

Vladimir Putin's administration justified the decision to curb coverage of Trump by saying that Russian viewers no longer find details of his transition to power interesting, according to one of the people.

In fact, far from easing up, we should press for further sanctions in response to Russia's continuing aggression in Ukraine - and for its cyber-attacks against our country and its manipulation of our electoral process.
Vyacheslav Volodin, speaker of the State Duma, the lower house of Russia's parliament, echoed the same stance, telling lawmakers that any talk of Crimea's status challenges Russia's territorial integrity.
"The issue of sanctions was not discussed" with Tillerson, Lavrov said.

The order comes amid a growing chorus of anti-Russian sentiment in Washington, where US spy and law-enforcement agencies are conducting multiple investigations to determine the full extent of contacts Trump's advisers had with Russia during and after the 2016 election campaign. "And to be honest, secondarily, I want to do the right thing for the world", Trump said.
"Why is it always the United States that gets right in the middle of things, with something that - you know, it affects us, but not almost as much as it affects other countries", Trump said.
So far, Trump and Putin have just had one phone call, on January 28, where both leaders said they would like better relations after years of friction.
His comment came after Sean Spicer, the White House spokesman, said Mr Trump "expects" Mr Putin to "return Crimea" - a remark greeted with fury in Moscow. On Wednesday, a Russian spy ship was spotted 30 miles from a U.S. Navy submarine base in CT.
